When i am not mistaken, this is a rebuttal to the claim, that a scientific worldview does not acknowledge beauty. He certainly makes a good job of describing the poetic aspects of a biological world shaped by random processes and nonrandom selection. Kinda what Neal Degrasse Tyson does on a cosmic scale. Even though scientificly thinking atheists don't attribute meaning to the world and their view is not that mystical, it does not mean that they can't be deeply emotional and awestruck by the natural world. Their lives are far from empty and senseless.

Their lives are far from empty and senseless because their lives are free of the nonsense of religion. They are free to live the only life that everyone is going to get without the crap that their every thought and dream is being scrutinised by some maker. in the hope that they are going to some better place after they die, how ridiculous an idea is that.
56.575.000 people have died on this planet in the last 12 months slightly less the year before and slightly less the year before that and okay the population of the earth has crept up to it's present high but imagine how many people have died since the beginning on human kind. Fecking lots, so assume (which I know makes an Ass out of you and me) that there is a heaven, just one, it's going to be rather overcrowded don't you think. Full of ex wives, ex husbands, newer wives newer husbands, girlfriends that you once cheated on people you didn't get on with. Not for me thanks. :D

#1 I believe your soul or spirit would take up very little space in the vastness of Heaven. :)
If you don't believe in all that well that just makes more room for everyone else that does. :D

#9 I'm guessing you directed your last comment to the wrong person, no matter, I'll answer anyway. You've already proved that you are an idiot in your well slapped down comments last week.

On this subject it's all conjecture you have no evidence that a) Their is a heaven, b) It's dimensions or the space required for a soul or spirit c) I can believe that the oceans are one day going to levitate and turn into flamingos it doesn't mean they ever will.

Everything you believe you did not know before you were born, you have either been told or read it from a book or in your case probably by looking at the pictures. if the book is fantasy then that is what you now believe. The only thing on your side is that no one ever come's back from the dead to prove or disprove your theory (NO ONE). Which if you think about it gives exactly 50% credence to both theories. ;)

#10 Yea you guessed right, I meant to respond to you.
Well if I am an idiot for having a belief and faith in God at least I am in a prestigious group of idiots......
Nicolas Copernicus, Sir Francis Bacon, Johannes Kepler, Galileo, Blaise Pascal, Michael Faraday, Gregor Mendel, William Thomson Kelvin, all believed in God or a "Creator". There are millions of other intelligent, successful people in the world who also believe in God and the fact that you don't doesn't bother me a bit. I just find it funny and idiotic that you get your feathers ruffled because some people believe in something other than what you do.
As Einstein said, "Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.
