Review--Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey

It is nearly impossible to imagine that FOX News and Cosmos appear on the same network. It is difficult to believe that they are even on the same planet, but often ignorance and intelligence team up to become strange…

Counter-Apologetic to:"You're not an atheist! You're agnostic because you're not certain."

Many Theists make this argument at some point, but it was Carl Sagan who said it with the most clarity:

“An atheist is someone who is certain that God does not exist, someone who has compelling evidence against the existence of God. I know of no such compelling evidence. Because God can be relegated to remote times and…

Mindblowingly Amazing. Just. Wow.

 

 

34 Photos from The ISS





I couldn't decide if my favourite was the shot of The Milky Way from beyond The Earth or the image of the Aurora - taken from what seems like inside the aurora!! or the sunset reflecting of The Caspian Sea.

 

Okay  - that's my top 3 right there - but they are all of them absolutely awesome.  Do your brain…

TWO WORLDS CONVERGE part three

In both of science and religions areas of my life, I have many more experiences that added to both my understanding of the natural world and understanding about Christianity and religion. In high school, I was fortunate to take almost every science class that was offered. I even became a science proctor, [that is a teacher's aide or assistant]. The classes I took included: General Science, Biology,(two years) Chemistry, Astronomy, Physics, and Zoology. The only two classes I didn't take that…

In Heaven Everything Is Fine - From Atheist Climber

"Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is."



Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy




As you may have read previously on my blog, I'm a big fan of perspective. I like to have an idea of where I am and who I am, what it means to be alive and what it means to be… Continue

IN HONOR OF CARL SAGAN

To celebrate Carl Sagan’s birthday I thought I would post a few of his quotes:



I maintain there is much more wonder in science than in pseudoscience. And in addition, to whatever measure this term has any meaning, science has the additional virtue, and it is not an inconsiderable one, of being true.



In every country, we should be teaching our children the scientific method and the reasons for a Bill of Rights. With it comes a certain decency, humility and community…

Carl Sagan

This was posted by Gavin Melville Barber, Thanks!

This is what I read to my children. Through reading about these people as child, I have learned the way towards being a free person is to read. It drives home several very important facts. This aspiring piece that shows the depth of Carl Sagan and of his passion for humanity. That of Frederick Bailey, an observant child. Who rose up from slavery to freedom. When you get your turn to rise up from "mental slavery" whom will you take with… Continue

Mondo Diablo Episode 197: Carl Sagan on Natural and Artificial Selection





Carl Sagan's Cosmos is still relevant, still enlightening, and still entertaining after twenty-nine (!) years. I am fond of them all, but the one that sticks in my mind is the tale of the Heiki Crabs, which bear, ostensibly, miraculous markings on their shells. Carl explains why, and relates this artificially selected phenomenon with the theory of natural… Continue

Episode 194: Carl Sagan on the DIstinction Between True and False Visions





Carl Sagan's book, "The Demon Haunted World," is as close to an "atheist bible" as you can get. Well, it is to me, anyway. Here I include the chapter called "On the Distinction Between True and False Visions," which deals with Marian apparitions.

Un Punto Azul Pálido

"Eso es aquí. Eso es casa. Eso es nosotros. Sobre él, todo aquel que amas, todo aquel que conoces, todo aquel del que has oído hablar, cada ser humano que existió, vivió sus vidas. La suma de nuestra alegría y sufrimiento, miles de confiadas religiones, ideologías y doctrinas económicas, cada cazador y recolector, cada héroe y cobarde, cada creador y destructor de la civilización, cada rey y campesino, cada joven pareja enamorada, cada madre y padre, cada esperanzado niño, inventor y… Continue
