Think About It

A big, sweet, cosmic shimmy to Mike's Blog for this photo of earth.

I don't believe that the earth is, or needs to be, a "privileged planet." We're a pull-ourselves-up-by-our-solarsystem-straps kind of deal.

That's good enough for me.

Thanks for the link and comment on my blog. I think the religious types
have much less sense of wonder and awe of the universe. For those of us
who have a naturalistic view there is much more wonder and awe. There is no simple "God did it" answer. Carl Sagan's quote sums it up perfectly.
I had printed out the picture and Carl Sagan quote and taped to my wall in the last place I was living and working. It was always good to start the day and remind myself periodically of this bit of perspective.

Thanks, Mike, for your thoughts (and for your link to my blog earlier!). I cannot believe that it’s almost ten years since Carl Sagan’s death. What an influence he had on me—it’s incalculable.
