"Blind faith"?!?  I wonder if any of those schmucks have the slightest idea of the mountains of fossil and other evidence which supports evolution?  That doesn't even mention the multidisciplinary support it has from fields as diverse as physics, geology, anthropology and genetics.

The fact is that creationists are getting their collective asses kicked ... and they KNOW it.  Sadly, the only way they know how to react is to make specious claims to the contrary.  Eventually, said response will result in laughter so loud that they may eventually learn to keep their mouths shut. 

Whoa!  Creationists evolving!

We've been watching it as a family, and it's GREAT! :)

Creationists are watching it as a family as well........a dysfunctional family! 

I HOPE they're watching it FA!  If they are, I'm sure most are making excuse to their kids about how what he's saying is not true because the buybull says differently!

They can make excuses all they want, Mindy ... but my suspicion is that eventually, the bible's lack of supporting evidence will run up against science's utter dedication to evidence, as well as rationality and logic, and the bible will come up wanting.

Not a fast or easy or even guaranteed process ... but I'd be willing to bet it's happening in places.

I hope it happens within my kids' lifetimes!

There's a certain satisfaction in watching science, like an unstoppable steamroller, unapologetically progress forward against the ridiculous claims of religion and willful ignorance.  This Cosmos is pulling no punches and is doing so quite eloquently.

"Creationism's days are numbered; Cosmos frightens them more than anything has in a very long time. Everyday their numbers get smaller and smaller and their grasp on America becomes weaker and weaker."

I love last night's episode.  Love the fact that NDT called evolution a fact, and left no room for argument.  

Oh, yes Alex, I'd forgotten that Tyson called evolution a FACT,  That was perhaps my favorite part.  Thanks for reminding me.

Like Loren, I want to watch it again.

If anyone wants to watch it again, who did't record it, you can see both the first and second episodes, in full here.

Here's the complete link.

Most excellent, Pat!  Thank you for posting that!
