We are the one worthwhile thing in the shithole of our known universe.

It doesn't make us insignificant, it makes us unprecedentedly wonderful. We can take that gift and do what we will with it.

What we've done so far is pretty awesome. I want to be worthy of what our ancestors have given us.

ATHEISMOR DETECTS A LIFE AFFIRMING STATEMENT, DISPATCH MY MINION ANDYWEAK TO PUT DOWN THIS UPSTART

Are you one of those people that believe the Earth was designed for humans?

How can you say "We are the one worthwhile thing in the shithole of our known universe."?

With that I said I suppose we are on the right track by attempting to destroy nature...since it is worthless. And since when did the universe become a shithole? I wasn't informed.

Carl Sagan should be a class in university. People need to know this shit, and need to understand the basics of our universe. Then we can move beyond religion and focus elsewhere.

Well, we've proved that we can spread to other worlds, theoretically. So I think we owe it to the other animals on Earth to give it our best shot and infect the universe with Terran life like some kinda unholy plague.

Staggeringly beautiful words. When I think that half of Americans simply choose to ignore everything that the human species has learned over the past few centuries, I will look back on this video.

We need more men like Carl Sagan.

When I think of the fact, that is.

Background: the image is from Voyager I in 1990, from past Neptune's orbit. Some scientists opposed it as having little scientific merit, but then NASA head Rear Adm Richard Tully ensured the images were taken before the Voyager imaging were dismissed.

I highlighted this passage when I first read PBD in '94, and I'm glad its gone viral (with several versions). Its something every human should be exposed to, and maybe a few thousand years after the carbon era it will be excerpted for religiophilosophy tomes.

You'll find other musical backings that aren't as overbearing. I prefer the Eno scored:

Every time I hear this, I start to lose it. It gets me real emotional.

Sucks to think we're all alone out here.

Statistically, we're probably not. Other intelligent life is likely to be so ridiculously far away that we might as well be, though.

In 1994, in tribute to his work, Apple engineers code-named one of their Macintosh projects "Carl Sagan," which was only for internal use. Sagan, being the introspective, bigger picture type as you get from this passage, sued Apple Inc. Apple won, because the lawsuit was retarded, and they changed the codename to "BHA." When Sagan learned that this stood for Butt-Head Astronomer, he sued again, this time for libel, and lost again.

He had to quit smoking pot because of his career, so he could be a real asshole sometimes, but that doesn't make him wrong here y'know.

Carl Sagan is like if Stephen Hawking and Hunter Thompson had a beautiful manchild.
Squeamish
:D
