Whoa. I thought this was a viral commercial only online, like a year ago....haha nice.

Earthquakes from nature. Oh boy. the creationists are going to be pissed. Of course if you do not understand logic and reason it is hard to have a solid debate.

/I once snuck onto a NOAA facility to see Alvin

I was working with Oceaneering on a Navy project and I was able to check out the ROV they used to retrieve Gus Grissom's Mercury capsule.

Even back then nobody wanted to be in New Jersey. Nothing has changed.

SquiggsIN: ArgusRun: But I acknowledge there is an experience or state called faith that other people have that I have never experienced.

and that is biology, not the supernatural.  it is an emotional response that your body translates into a feeling and religion has co-opted it as the "holy spirit".  it's just biology.


I think you are right, but that doesn't make it any more real or important because of it.   Look love is just a biological response.  Oxytocin, pair bonding, etc.  And yet human society is so much more than a simple breeding colony.

Knowing love is simply a biological function like faith doesn't make it any more real or powerful.

I love the little connections that I read about from Farkers and Farkettes on here. So cool.

I've always wondered...when the earth was in the Pangaea "stage," if there were Hurricanes would they be stronger because of the abundance of the water?

I hope I'm making sense.

Could not Adam Sandler make even more money by asking people to pay him to not make movies?
 
2014-05-04 09:45:01 PM  
This makes the old " i don't need to run fast, I just need to run faster that you" funny. However ... Eventually evolution takes care of the issue with extinction.

Smart advertising an Adam Sandler movie during Cosmos. I suspect a ton of Creationists are watching. Good to hit their target market.

I'm watching this on my laptop (Aereo).  I honestly thought this was an ad for 50 First dates or an inadvertent youtube click.

That chick dressed as the Wal Mart employee is hot.

SquiggsIN: hint : we already have


Sadly, I agree.  This winter weather we had this year proves it in my mind.

I should add, I am not the best person at posing those questions, but thanks for understanding what I meant.  :)

Adolf Oliver Nipples: phillydrifter: Neil deGrasse Tyson and the Ship of the Imagination

"the ship of 'imagination'" has got to be the stupidest possible name ever in the history of stupidest possible names for a science and fact-based tv show.

/fact

Why? Virtually every scientific hypothetical I was ever presented with starts with the word imagine. Without imagination half of these things would not have been discovered. It's a perfectly apt term, considering that what is being explored from the ship cannot be explored physically.


Look, he said to his imagination, if this is how you're going to behave, I shan't bring you again.

I'm with him - Adam Sandler movies are like ebola; I don't have to worry about it, but I'm sad at what it does to fellow humans

NdT has guts to bring out the land bridge in the same episode as the continental drift.

Yep, just imagine how resourceful we'll have to be to survive.

I think we'll be OK, though some places will have to be abandoned and political boundaries will necessarily shift, but even with climate change we'll survive.
