youtube for the day/ Carl Sagan's "Cosmos" about Johannes Kepler

I don't recall posting this before. I post it now.  It's an important lesson that 'it's easier to destroy than create.'  It's easier to be irrational than rational. The irrational are always, "respect my religion"(a religion that doesn't respect anybody elses religion; neither christianity and the Koran . . . i'm forgetting the name of the relgion . . . respect each other; the old testament didn't respect everyone elses religion - the baalims, the Asheras(god's wife in the old testament), the Egyptians, and the Babylonians; i've seen in the pauline epistles Paul saying gentiles, heathens, basically, everyone else but his religion. I've seen the Koran say gentiles, christians, and everyone elses religion needs to go).  The truth is we need to understand that no knowledge is sacred; it's all updatable.  The only sacred truth is there is no sacred truth.  I'm shocked that scientists today don't understand that we should have a social group that is willing to criticize . . . everything, and to face facts and logic.

The spirit of science is always having trouble with the irrational mind as Carl Sagan's episode about Kepler shows.

I've shown my gospel of truth to many christians; always, it's met with 1 corinthians;

1:19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
1:20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
1:21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
1:22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:
1:23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;
1:24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
1:25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
1:26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
1:27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
