Cosmos 2014: Episode 1.


Neil deGrasse Tyson telling the story of Giordano Bruno and how the religious Catholic Church expelled, banned, imprisoned, and murdered him for questioning the Sun and other planets revolving around Earth.

This is one example of why I question any belief without evidence (even mine own beliefs), but regardless of the difference in opinion, we should all respect each others independent thoughts and ideas – for this is how we move forward as a people (by forcing us to question ourselves).

This show is going to be great! 🙂
