Am I the only one who thinks each episode should be 5 hours in length?

/Lotsa $$$$ commercials

YES! the animation I remember so well, and the same music. Preach it, Carl!
 
2014-03-16 09:59:45 PM  
That ended abruptly.
 
2014-03-16 09:59:46 PM  
That was not an hour that just went by.

Keyser_Soze_Death: enry: Keyser_Soze_Death: Can't wait for the religious folks who got bent last week to see this week's episode.

I'm religious and love it.

Then again I'm just religious, not a dumbass homophobic fundie.

I should have clarified. Relevant update in bold.


My bad.
 
2014-03-16 09:59:55 PM  
I liked that ending animation.  I need to make a Gif of that.

Dimensio: anti-Christian bias.


I'm a pretty devout Catholic.
 
2014-03-16 10:00:33 PM  
That hour goes by very quickly.
 
2014-03-16 10:00:35 PM  
I think they might end episode with a call back to Carl Sagan.
They did it last time...and did it again tonight.

Cool points just went up.

Lousy cutoff of end credits by commercials

[grumble]
 
2014-03-16 10:00:51 PM  
I know it's very unlikely but I would enjoy multiple seasons of this.

Did the Central Oklahoma drinking rules for the show.   No commercial replaced any mention evolution (or anything else).

I'm utterly and completely sober.

Too short, too many commercials, too superficial. Science isn't going to win the ratings, I'm afraid.  We're screwed. Time to start worshiping trees again, dammit!

Waldo Pepper: Pariah.: He just biatched-slapped the 'God of the Gaps' mentality right in the face.

How?


That line about Science operating on the the edge between knowledge and ignorance, not afraid to admit what we don't know, no shame in that. The only shame is claiming that we have all the answers.

"God of the gaps is a type of theological perspective in which gaps in scientific knowledge are taken to be evidence or proof of God's existence"

Sometimes related to or used to mean similar thing to the argument from ignorance fallacy. Such arguments are popular with the anti-science crowd.

ManateeGag: There's oil on Titan?  INVADE!


I believe you mean LIBERATE!

Operation Titani Freedom!

Methane is highly explosive and they have tons and tons of it, WMDS!
 
2014-03-16 10:05:48 PM  

Grote-Man: "All the oil and natural gas on Earth is just a tiny fraction of what's on Titan."

And in other news today, the United States has declared war on the moon of Titan,


 just stay off Europa

Waldo Pepper: Why is science being packaged like it is a religion? Seems the music is right out of Demiles 10 Commandments.


It isn't, Just some people feel their religion is threatened by the comment and equate it to a competitor religion.

The first episode was number 2 for the night (number 1 was The Good Wife, I think)

nmrsnr: jaytkay: nmrsnr: But it wouldn't have killed them to say "white looking fur."

There's a two-word phrase for "white looking fur."

It's "white fur".

Nope. While white fur certainly is white-looking, a polar bears' fur, while it certainly looks white, is actually clear.


Which you would have known I already said if they didn't cut off my original comment that started this whole discussion lol

Having Danica McKellar hosting would make the show slightly more fappable

Ultimately its the same shiat. A source for the Big Answers you're ultimately going to have to take on faith.

The priests of science are somewhat more reliable at producing miracles though.
