I have watched it yesterday. Quite beautiful pictures (most of them created by computer but still, that's epic !)

Presented by Neil deGrasse Tyse (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neil_deGrasse_Tyson) this is quite interesting and, if you take away the usual evolutionary stuff, a spectacular view of Jehovah's creation work.

 

(It had to introduce a little the idea of the multiverse :uhhuh: , but still aknowledged that they "don't know our life started" B) )

I got an email from the Discovery Institure regarding the program

It seems like nowadays every Hollywood entertainer needs his own policy on science education. Actor/comedian Seth MacFarlane, for one, laments what he perceives as a "vacuum when it comes to science education.

What does MacFarlane believe is creating this vacuum? Is it a lack of funding for science or a lack of qualified science teachers? No, he says, it is "the rise of schools questioning evolution, all these things piling up that betray the fact that we've lost our way in terms of our scientific literacy." He also points to the "resurgence" of "intelligent design quote-unquote theory."

His answer to the problem is a healthy dose of his 13-part series on Fox, Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, hosted by Neil deGrasse Tyson, which began airing last night. Endorsed by President Obama, no less, it's a series that promotes Carl Sagan's idea that the material world "is all that is, or ever was, or ever will be."

Here at Discovery Institute's Center for Science & Culture we believe that the antidote to such faulty thinking is truth -- truth about the inadequacy of the Darwinian explanation for the complexity and diversity of life, about the positive scientific evidence of design in cosmology and biology. There is an urgent need to educate young people to participate thoughtfully in the debate over what constitutes good science and good education. We need to raise up scientists, educators, journalists, and even movie and TV producers who can speak with sweet reason and authority about this vital issue not only in science but in our culture. That's why your support of our Summer Seminar on Intelligent Design in the Natural Sciences is so important.

After all, who do you want to educate our society on the issue of evolution and intelligent design? Is it show business producers who are perpetuating the ideas of Sagan, Dawkins, and Tyson?

Your support of the Summer Seminar will allow us to summon a new generation of educators and leaders who have the desire, vision, and determination to break the hold that neo-Darwinism has on science, the media, and our culture as a whole.

Obviously the Discovery Institute are wanting donations, but the comments on the programme are interesting.

I remember watching the original Carl Sagan programme years ago and I recall being disturbed by it. Although I was not in the truth at that time, it seemed to me to be anti-God and I hated that.

I am very disgusted with the series so far! It promised so much!

 

Neil DeGrasse Tyson began by stating "Question EVERYTHING" and then has consistently launched the theory of evolution as fact!

 

When the second episode aired, I watched about 15 minutes before telling my son to turn it off.

 

No matter how beautiful the special effects, they are taking credit away from MY father and creator who DID ALL THIS WORK!!!!!

 

arrrggggghhhhh......!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!      :upset:
