      This feature is short but poignant. Compared to other documentaries that take a series to tell a story and explain an idea, this film is only six minutes short and takes the viewers to the top of the Himalayas, looking into the vast atmosphere of space.

      Learn about the Universe in this film, which also makes use of a four dimensional map as part of its illustration.

      Created for the American Museum of Natural History, this film is also being exhibited at the museum for its guests.

      This is part of the series Visions of the Cosmos: From the Milky Ocean to an Evolving Universe, which was also shown at the Rubin Museum of Art in Manhattan through May 2010.

      If God is so great, do you thinks he will be spending all of his energy spying on us, living in this tiny mote of dust that we call earth, do you really think we are all there is out there that matters in the universe. I think those believes where accepted when people where ignorant of what is going on in space, “why are there star? uuummm I think god created them for sure” see my point!

      Poor Raza !!! Brainwashed beyond hope !!!

      Whenever we read … the cruel and tortuous executions, the unrelenting vindictiveness with which more than half the Bible is filled, it would be more consistent that we call it the word of a demon than the word of God. It is a history of wickedness that has served to corrupt and brutalize humankind. And, for my own part, I sincerely detest it, as I detest everything that is cruel. — Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason

      Is it just me or am I the only won who finds amusement in learning things and also finds comfort in the belief that for all the things I don’t know there is a reasoning force behind them? I do not believe that the typical view of God exists I only think it the way we humans can comprehend an incomprehensible set of laws governing physics as of right now. To me God is the comfort I found in knowing that there is order amongst chaos – since I was young and dropped markers in two liter pop bottles filled with water to watch them diffuse or using a Feynman Diagram to help understand something we cannot illustrate.

      Besides if someone tried to take science away from me I would fight like a made man to keep it – similarly as we all do not think the same, if someone fought someone who understands the world through religion as opposed to science I can sympathize with their attempts of holding onto their beliefs.

    • Puccaluv

      the sad thing about atheists AND believers is…NEITHER OF YOU KNOW THE DEAL.
      …if it is to be known.

      due to the nature of the issue:NEITHER party can EVER claim victory in the debate…but,goodluck gentlemen.

      and…hate on.
