Come on tumblr, if there’s something I know you can do is raise awareness. Well why not raise awareness for something that literally affects everyone?
Help me expand the number of people interested in everything Science and Astronomy, by reposting this Intro to Carl Sagan’s 1980’s hit series “Cosmos”.Not to sound like an advertisement for a 30 year old documentary but If you’re a person of many questions towards the universe and many of life’s questions viewed through rational eyes, Cosmos is the show for you. Put hate, faith, false certainty to reopen the childhood sensitivity we all had towards discovery and imagination greatly expressed in this and give the documentary a go. Which you can find anywhere from netflix to Hulu, or even my own site here.
If we plan to survive the ever changing present and future from those who seek to take advantage of technology for the sake of commercializing every single aspect of life, leaving the rest of society hungry and famine ridden due to greed. We have to get the notion out that if we are to survive them we need to be smarter, compassionate towards one another as well as our ecosystems. We still have a chance now while all is moderately (being generous with that word) stable to make changes for the sake of our future.
“Up there in the immensity of the Cosmos, an inescapable perception awaits us. National boundaries are not evident when we view the Earth from space. Fanatical ethnic, religious or national chauvinism are a little difficult to maintain when we see our planet as a fragile blue crescent fading to become an inconspicuous point of light against the bastion and citadel of the stars.” - Carl Sagan
If this struck you as interesting and you’d like more, you can find a full post on the show’s downloadable links here. It’s also up on Hulu and Netflix (entire series.). Every deserves to watch this. Religious or Not.
Because It really is about time that the rationally stable became outspoken and spread their word. Reblog if You support Science
