Earth as seen from Saturn by Cassini

Earth as seen from Saturn by Cassini

Recent photos from the Cassini spacecraft show mighty planet Saturn; look very closely between its wing-like rings, a faint pinprick of light. "That tiny dot is Earth bustling with life as we know it, stunning many people, including the famous astronomer Carl Sagan who called our seemingly miniscule planet a "pale blue dot" and "the only home we've ever known."

Yes!! you are totally right about the delusions of the theist dogma control !! As I was one of the child indoctrinated many. and saved my self from this control of lies and magic dreaming with knowable reading and listening!! I am now sane and clear to learn from reality and facts of the earth & cosmos wonders!! Thank you for your thoughts....................joe

joseph f logston, we live in such an exciting age of discovery. The wonders of it all just fill me with gratitude that I and you and we all are a part of this magnificent universe. My hope is that we can abandon the ways of war to resolve conflict and find better ways of living together. Delusions offer us no freedom.

I might get the hang of this making, assembling and sending photo albums. Isn't it fun!

Thanks for this, Joan.  As spectacular as the pix from the Pioneer and Voyager missions were, these have their own true magic: the magic of discovery, of learning and of knowing.
