It's a Beautiful and a Must Watch Video.

Yes, many of those thinkers to whom I owe my mental freedom were religious, like Newton, a Christian, who believed God made the Earth but who then showed me why the Earth would have formed without a god's help. Or Plank and Schrodinger, two more Christians, who believed God ruled the Universe but showed me how God could not control a single electron. The discoveries these and many other people made, the laws they are famous for, are the very things that make gods getting humans pregnant, or angels whispering to prophets in caves, look infantile. I could never and would never question their intelligence. Their honesty and intellectual consistency are a different matter.

Weird...

I can stand on the shoulders of giants and see what even they seemingly could not.

I'm not against the Creator(s), if they exist, if they ever existed. I'm not against the search for the Creator(s). What blows MY mind is that people think religion has anything to do with it at all.

I disagreed with a couple of the things he spoke about, but otherwise, that was beautiful.

Hi. I was browsing through the science channel and i came across this video. I saw it a few years ago and i thought it was amazing. It still manages to make me tear up after all this time.

This might be relevant to your interests. It's called 'pale blue dot' by Carl Sagan.
