If i'd had a science teacher with half his enthusiasm when I was a kid, i'd have found it hard not to pursue those subjects back then.

Seen this vid before, nice to see it again though :tu:

Of course there are. Take, for example, the extraordinarily scientific and irrefutably logical claim by some on this forum that states, "I don't know anything about the construction techniques of ancient cultures so alienz did it."

Simply brilliant! :rolleyes:

He actually said nothing we didn't already know 100 years ago.

You're relying on human knowledge gathered in the past? I'm shocked! :o  

What is this forum coming to? :cry:

He is a great conveyor of science! I wish I had more time to enjoy such programs, unfortunately that is not the case.

I envy you that you have the time to spare to watch :P I just watched the one in the OP and it is excellent. He definitely has a way with words...."drooling, blithering idiots in their presence." about us if we met an Alien race that was as intelligent compared to us as we are compared to chimps. How very true.

Who's science? People who can read I imagine.

You do not get to choose sciences, there is science and that is it. Fringe borrows the word science and abuses it. People are entitled to their own opinions, not their own facts. Science is what it is, the pursuit of knowledge.

We know something that you say is not "your" science" do we? How do we "Know" it then Zoser? That which you abhor confirms it does it?

LOL.

I watched this video earlier and thought it was well worth sharing. This is the most reasonable explanation of why there can be a possibility of there being life beyond this planet earth. I was fascinated by his explanation in this video. What are your thoughts on it?

I new this would be worth diverting to my phone for.

What are my thoughts? That this is an excellent presentation. Bless DeGrasse Tyson.

He has the Nova show, and also plenty of pod cast interviews.... love it. :tu:

If you get BBC Iplayer in your neck of the woods, check out Professor Brian Cox's new series "What is life?"...on a slightly different tangent in the first episode, but well worth a watch, and the subsequent programmes in the series look really promising :tu:

I remember this video being posted on UM not too long ago. Quite a humbling and almost calming notion that the universe and us are all essentially one.

Thank you for the heads up. I loved Morgan Freemans Through the wormhole, The Universe, The Solar System How the Universe works and The Grand Design. I reckon I am going to love this.
