Cosmos: a space time Odyssey

I am trying but can't make any sense out of your last two post in this thread. Are you joking around and it's just completely going over my head? 

 

It's kind of like Francis Collins.  He gives all the credit of his discoveries to God, it's an extra step everyone ignores.  Yet I'm still a young earth creationist.

This thread has been dying quick lol. Tonight's episode was kind of lame. Only thing I learned about were black lines in between spectrums of light. This show has been hugely over hyped.

Yeah, I didn't dig tonight's episode too much. It was less science, more history. I get the whole need for a history backdrop to science, but give me more of the science-y stuff and less cartoons of characters from the 17th century and before.

This series has been more about our civilization's history than about the universe. I don't give a fug about our civilization's past. I watch this show for the universe!

My only complaint about the show is I'm still waiting for a mention of a sub-Saharan African contribution to the world.  So far they've mentioned contributions from Europe, Asia, and the the Americas. (I believe they mentioned the Mayans).  I want to hear more about that African contribution, other than being the birth place of humans.  The only black guy that was mentioned in the show so far, is pretty much a shadow.  We don't even know if he was black, but is only said to have a dark complexion. (This was in the episode that included the discussion of black holes.  DeGrasse mentioned this person may have been the first guy to contemplate about the idea of black holes, which he called them "Dark Stars")

 

 

So I just want to know a little more about black history other than the struggle of racism and so forth.  What are our contributions, again other than being the birth place for humanity?

The term cosmos is actually a philosophical term.  It basically means the order of everything - the universe, nature, man, etc.  If you want to watch a show about cool stuff in space there are plenty of others out there but that's not the point of this series.
