5.0 out of 5 stars Live Long and Prosper February 14, 2014
Format:DVD
I used to watch Carl Sagan's show "Cosmos" all of the time when I was a kid. I loved that show. You knew that Mr. Sagan truly understood his subject as he was able to explain things in simple ways to "simple" people. If you hear someone only speak in complex terms, or in particular, if you hear that same someone only recycle what's been said or written before, you can almost guarantee that he doesn't truly understand his own subject matter. (I believe that Microsoft HR people train employees to interview with this idea in mind, by the way. Force a candidate into breaking things down to basics.)

At least once, but surely more times than that, Mr. Sagan was asked about his opinion on religion. His response? "Well, atheists must know more than I know." What he meant was: "It is just as foolish to say that God does not exist than it is to say that He definitely does." This is because it is impossible to prove either way. It is also impossible to know for sure Mr. Sagan's own personal beliefs -- his widow argued after his death that he was an atheist, mostly to appease the scientific community, but he was almost surely an agnostic (he implied it by definition himself!) -- not that it really mattered. What mattered was: he was a very logical guy.

And then Stephen Hawking came along and said something like, "You don't need God to create the Universe." Now, this statement was completely taken out of context logically by the masses. Mr. Hawking did not imply, "God does not exist," but rather I believe, "It is still possible to prove that, even if God doesn't exist, the Universe still could have been created. Furthermore, we could be in our current state without a Creator." This is a huge distinction, even "huger" than the Universe perhaps itself.

I loved this presentation. The fact that it is narrated by Stephen Hawking himself with computer techology is the most wonderful aspect. I ordered this copy for my Granddaughter who is 13 and has known for several years she wants to become a Astrophysist. She has excellent grades and is setting her sights on Stanford for college. This was no problem on deciding to order it for her once I had seen it on PBS. So interesting and inspirational a definite must see!!!!
