— Carl Sagan gives the best speech ever
about humanity and how foolishly we behave
on this “oasis in space.” Pale Blue Dot is
an important speech about the nature of infinity,
and how this reflects on our humanity. Sagan’s video
humbles us and is mind-blowing, too.
With a discussion about infinity which is emphasized
by the video.

“The Best Speech about Humanity”

by Carl Sagan

Dr. Sagan Puts it All in Perspective
as only this science popularizer could

The Truthful Patriot’s Corner (Link to Home page and Blog), updated December 3, 2020, by Paul Evans, video is The Best Speech about Humanity – Carl Sagan, courtesy of “The Pander” and YouTube. I would like to thank Professor John Pope of Miami University (OH), who taught me earth history and paleontology, for introducing me to concepts about cosmology and infinity. My friend Bert Bishop also has discussed this video with me helpfully. The green symbol below is a “Triquetra,” Irish luck charm and symbol of love which a man gives to his intended. Given in intention to the caring, special woman who sees past my poverty and limitations and loves me true. Ladies, for friends and romance, email Paul Evans at (Where are the hot CIA and NSA babes when you need one?)

SUMMARY: Carl Sagan gives the best speech ever about humanity and how foolishly we behave. Pale Blue Dot is an important speech aboui the nature of infinity, with some additions from me, and how this reflects on our humanity. This is a mind-blowing, humbling video.

Also watch U2 “Love and Peace or Else” (Mix). Answer me this, scientists: why is the sky blue? But why does the ammonia exist in an oxidizing atmosphere? (Ammonia is chemically and thermodynamically unstable in the presence of oxygen, and scientifically shouldn’t be present in the atmosphere at all. Lately scientists have come up with a new explanation, that the sky is blue because of what they call “ion scattering.” OK, this still does not expain why there is a lot of ammonia in the air, does it? “If you wanna kiss the sky, better learn how to kneel” — U2. As the Germans say, “Gott im Himmelblau! (God in the blue of the sky, a general exclamation of astonishment.) The astro-physicists have now calculated that there is a one over 10 to the 28th power (10 followed by 28 zeros) that ANY universe could exist which could support multicellular life, and I have read that 90 percent of astronomers believe in God. And God Bless my hometown of Wooster, Ohio!

Join the Peace and Love Revolution! The charismatic Christian community, the spiritualist Christians, the “Christian witches” and the earth witches and most pagan witches ALL are moral, ethically good people. Fundamentalist Christians in my experience wrongly believe that witches worship the moon as “the devil.” While most of them, so far as I know, do place strong emphasis on an “earth-moon synergy,” very, very few witches are Satanic, as any decent coven of witches would quickly expel anyone who showed any tendency towards evil. Witches place primary emphasis on Life in its various manifestations, while Christians place the emphasis on what is Holy as Light. Surely my fellow Christian brothers and sisters can see that this is not in any important way evil? And does not the Bible say, in fact, that “God is Life….”? I know these things not because I am a witch but because I have studied comparative religion for almost 40 years. My Christian brothers and sisters, Jesus taught us to NOT judge each other. “If it is not of love, it is not of God.” Please, in His name, let us set aside our ancient misunderstandings and band together, and fight the REAL evils in the world around us. In the name of Christ, Amen, and May it Be..

The Pander’s introduction says that “Carl Sagan gives the best speech ever about humanity and how foolish we behave. Pale Blue Dot is one of the most important and reflective speeches about the human condition and our place in the Universe.”

Irish symbol of love a Triquetra for luck

I have had friends who have told me they never thought anyone could understand about the whole concept of infinity, and what that’s about. ({You could almost “measure” such a thing as infinity by the volume of paper consumed at Treasury’s printing presses, right? LOL I still don’t see why we don’t just mint a bunch of one trillion dollar platinum/iridium coins using a geophysical bomb and put them in Fort Knox, declaring all debts cancelled to and by everyone at the same time, and so starting over from scratch. No one has ever given me a good reason why not. Somebody? Anybody?})

Mathematicians have “integral” equations that measure infinity and you can even graph it, and when you do, it usually involves a fourth dimension. Graphing infinity in ways that involve four factors helps to get a basic grasp of the concept. Achieving a good grasp of geologic time gives you some idea, too. But science is now giving us some “numbers” by which we can begin to grasp the dimensions of infinity: There are about 250 billion stars in our own Milky Way galaxy; that’s 250,000,000,000, or two hundred fifty thousand piles of a million stars each. Ten years ago science said there must be about 100 billion galaxies in the universe, as it was then understood. Now the scientists and astronomers claim that there are 250 billion galaxies in the universe. The number keeps getting bigger, as if, perhaps, the universe is really infinite. Oh they claim it’s about 18 billion light years travel at the speed of light across. But 250 billion galaxies is a lot of stars, and then you have “reflective” so-called black holes, and quasars and nebulae (where stars are still being formed), and they certainly give off light, too.

“The Light shines in the darkness and the darkness has never overcome it.” Nowhere in the universe is it any longer perfectly black. And each galaxy has many billions of stars. This is almost frightening and beyond normal comprehension, isn’t it? Just as we really only have the one word “Holy” to describe God. And also, photons, (or, you might call them, particles of light), themselves are an almost “impossible,” miraculous particle, aren’t they? A photon, with a given charge, size and certain properties, HAS NO MASS. Explain that, physicists. (I also think that the properties and applications from photon particles is something psychics should strongly investigate as who knows what applications this may have….

Carl Sagan (1934 – 1996): read about Dr. Sagan at Wikipedia). He is the narrator of this video, and was one of our most distinguished popularizers of modern scientific thought, having written many wonderful books you can read to understand such things. It is his huge humanity and caring which particularly come through in this short video. [When you read Carl Sagan, you should keep in mind that he was basically an atheist, but then how to explain books he wrote such as “Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark” (Kindle Edition, $13.95)?] Apparently Sagan was very attuned to such religious imagery and probably understood religious thought pretty well, as might a good astronomer and writer, someone with a mind like Sagan’s [(I have read a few of his books, and particularly enjoyed “The Dragons of Eden: Speculations on the Origin of Human Intelligence” (Kindle Edition, $7.95. (It’s the Monster Energy Drinks, Carl))].

If you watch this video, narrated by Dr. Sagan, you can get some idea from the simulation of travel outward through the vastness of space, from Earth, what sort of properties, or vastness, infinity involves. Did you know that 90 percent of astronomers believe in God? To me the vastness of space does give some testimony to the omnipotence and infinity of God, as if “the whole thing” is “God having an experience” (a kind of pantheism).

See This will Help You Grasp the Size of Things in the Universe, Nautilus on Pocket, no date, by Dan Garisto: “It’s one thing to imagine the scale of the universe. It’s another to see it up close.”
