Complex works of the Venezuelan artist Rafael Araujo
I’m just going to leave this here. Beyond The Amazing Atheist’s obnoxiousness, the point is: this is exactly why COSMOS is important (in America) and precisely why there couldn’t be a better time to light the fires underneath the scientific consensus and those who communicate science in order to stifle and smother out pseudoscience, mysticism, supernatural, and most influential of them all - Christianity.
I understand this may ruffle more feathers, but if this country wasn’t being led over the cliff as it has been for ages by religious fundamentalism, which has overstepped its boundaries into human rights, the understanding of our biosphere, expansion into space, communicating properly evolutionary biology, planetary science, cosmology, human history, and mainstream media (which includes politics), I would have absolutely nothing to say whatsoever and wouldn’t call a particular religion out at all.
However, that’s not the case. Enjoy this, and gear up for the next COSMOS episode, more awesomeness to come.
