Selamun Aleykum Everybody,

In my English class, my professor showed us this video recently. It is a TED talk with two people talking about human progress and what causes it. I disagree with a lot of things in the video and I am sure you guys will as well. I just wanted to know your opinions on it. The speakers are staunch atheists but they do make a couple of good points. How do we view this from an Islamic point of view?
