Neil is the best science communicator since Carl Sagan. Can't wait for the new Cosmos: Possible Worlds and glad he was cleared in the accusations from a Christian site that obviously wants his image destroyed.

What was that? Didn’t hear of that one!

Why should the universe want to figure itself out?
Does the universe have any interest in becoming self-aware?
I don't think so

@jerry99 ,

@callmedubious lol sagan didn't invent the word. he just came up with the idea that that's what we're all made of. he also called it star-stuff.
