A Most Astounding Fact
A friend and schoolmate of mine (Blake Burgess) shared this today and I was immediately smitten with it. I have always liked Neil deGrasse Tyson although I do not share his secular humanist perspective all the while profoundly respecting his keen intellect, passionate soul, and not insubstantial communication skills. Unlike him, when I look at the sky I feel small to the point of having to resist the urge to experience an existentialist anxiety attack. And yet I feel big at the same time when I think of my Creator and my connection to him and not merely my physical connection to all those celestial bodies strung out across the cosmos.
