Cosmos Television Series

I thought the latest Cosmos Series with Neal  DeGrasse Tyson was entertaining and successful. It was professionally done and I believe Tyson presented the material in a well thought out manner. Getting the viewer to understand the vastness of time and space in our universe helped reinforce the fact that our little orb called Earth is truly a fairly insignificant rock in the overall scope of things. His references to historical figures and their impact on our understanding of the cosmos and…

On Carl Sagan

I found this incredibly beautiful; a realistic love story, and a true appreciation of fleeting life:

By Ann Druyan, wife of Carl Sagan

When my husband died, because he was so famous and known for not being a believer, many people would come up to me - it still sometimes happens - and ask me if Carl changed at the end and converted to a belief in an afterlife. They also frequently ask me if I think I will see him again.

"Nietzsche and the Death of God" from Martin S Pribble

From Martin S Pribble





"God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned has bled to death under our knives: who will wipe this blood off us? What water is there for us to clean…

I decided it was time to come out of hiding under the monicker of Atheist Climber and go by my real name, for a couple of reasons.

"Greydon Square Interview - Prominent People Project" at Atheist Climber Blog

“The Prominent People Project” is a series of interviews (kicking off on October 10, 2010) with a selection of prominent figures in humanism, atheism, science and critical thinking.

This will be dependent on how these interviews are received by my readers.



My first interview is with the American Hip Hop artist… Continue

"The Mind is Everything" from Atheist Climber Blog

From Atheist Climber Blog



Is there a sense of determinism in the universe? Does the universe have a purpose?



My personal understanding of the universe is that there is no definite purpose for the universe, merely that the universe is a result of a series of events, which were the series of a previous series of events, which in turn, are the result of a previous series of… Continue

"Alone in the Universe" from Atheist Climber blog

from Atheist Climber Blog



We live in an imperfect universe, one where the objects that inhabit it are constantly under the strain of outside forces. And while, as was pointed out in the comments from my previous blog, there are moments where systems may work together cooperatively, these… Continue
