New Video: Pale Blue Dot - Carl Sagan

Now I know this video has nothing to do with Ron Paul, I still think it is important people see this and I know the people here at the Daily Paul will understand the underlying message of this video. This took me a very long time to put together. I really hope you enjoy.

so true


Carl Sagan had a wonderful voice

but to bad he was full of it. The same ole brainwashing crap with the "There is no sign of outside hope to save us from destroying ourselves." If that is the case then we are as good as destroyed. It's a good thing that some of us believe the truth and will receive the outside help that Sagan so ignorantly dismisses.

"Cosmos" should be mandatory reading in high school.

So you put all these images and music and his voice

together to create this video? If you did you got some REALLY good skill. What programs did you use to edit this?

Thanks! Yes I did make it all myself

I use a program called Power Director Pro to put the video together as well as another program called Adobe After Effects for the text scenes you saw in this video, which were very basic in this one. Thank you for your kind words.



Evolutionary Absolutism

All of this because they have and still do demonize Christian thinking -- they could of been part of the dialogue, but in their absolutism and dogma must live a life on extreme contradiction -- utilizing modern gene therapies and medicine that is wholly aligned with christian science or utilizing the internet which mirrors bacterial or viral connections

Some of the greatest scientist were Christians, Newton, Kepler, Einstein

The big bang is BS .. so i evolved from a hydrogen atom, give me a break ... The BS that you must believe in goo to you evolution is what is damaging to REAL science

You folks are no longer "at the table" (regarding education and

social morrays) and the athiests were not your primary persecutors, but your group was their's.

Newton, Kepler, and Eisntein did not put religious fundementalism before scientific inquiry.

"A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties and needs; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death."

- Albert Einstein, "Religion and Science,"

Men like Segan inspire and convey in seconds what Religions

have taken a milenia too.

Religion has Rock Music

Religion has pants wearing women as Deacons
---Of course I don't mind this (but at one point the Church was out of their mind about it)

Religion is like the Boca Burger (wanting to look like a hamburger), trying desperately to inspire using "modern" expressions of raw sexuality (like Rock music or women wearing men's clothing).

All of this because they have and still do demonize evolutionary thinking -- they could of been part of the dialogue, but in their absolutism and dogma must live a life on extreme contradiction -- utilizing modern gene therapies and medicine that is wholly aligned with evolutionary science or utilizing the internet which mirrors bacterial or viral connections.

All's they had to do was say "sex is good, please wear a condom to be safe" and "God created the Big Bang" and "people can marry whomever they wish as long as the relationship stays loving, kind, and recirocitous"

Absolutist stances against natural organic outcroppings (observation of nature as one example) and logic never bodes well in the long-run; you are made a idiot in your childrens eyes within one generation.

I don't think Jesus would of argued thusly.

I think he would say, "you are awesome, know that you are one with the essence of stars and the Creator, revel in it"

Puts The Blue Dot Into Perspective

Thanks for posting. I had forgotten about this and just sent it to my home schooling daughter along with this:


NASA is a mixed bag...but this is certainly a companion piece for home schooling and interesting.


Wonderful, brought tears to my eyes.

Translating and sharing this video with everyone I know.

Ron Paul Revolution is spreading around the world: Freedom and Prosperity TV: libertarian network of alternative media in Western Balkans

The tears welled up...

and I can't help myself...I'm blubbering. This was terrific..thank you! I'll be sharing with all I can.

Thank you very much!

And thanks for sharing!



thank you everyone for the kind words




Thank YOU

for sharing this :)

People have been trying to tell in loud tone like Charlie Chaplin with "The greatest speech ever made" and also in persuasive and emotional tone like this video. If only we could hack into the TV networks around the world and satellites to play these messages every once in a while to remind people who we are!

Very nice!!

Great timing with the narration and perfect visual selection. Well done!!

Important message as well. I share some graphic stuff I get inspired to put together. Great to be able to contribute with art to communicate a message. Check out the newest below. On point I think.

Keep up the inspiring work :)

Wow! They are great!

I really like the last two pictures! And thanks for the kind words



Beautifully done! I have

Beautifully done! I have sent it to all in my contacts list! Great effort, thank you!

Thank you very much!




This video reminded me of


I have his book on tape. It was read by Jodi Foster and it was like listening to him. Foster used his phrasing and vocal cadence. It was so powerful it moved me to tears. He is still missed.

Engaging in advanced citizenship

I love stuff like this.

BTW for anyone interested they're in the 3rd season of through the wormhole with Morgan Freeman it airs every Wednesday through the summer at 9 or 10 pm on science channel. Also the history channel has started making new episodes of the universe which I haven't had a chance to watch but should start recording. Every episode of shows like this just opens your mind to new thoughts and possibilities. Its so awesome to live in a time where its so easy to share science and all the thoughts and ideas of where we came from and where we're going.

Used to Love Morgan Freeman

But then found out he is highly racist and thinks white people are scum. Done with him.


Link or it didn't happen

Link or it didn't happen.

Freemans seems to be ok:

"Comments on race
Freeman has publicly criticized the celebration of Black History Month and does not participate in any related events, saying, "I don't want a black history month. Black history is American history."[40] He says the only way to end racism is to stop talking about it, and he notes that there is no "white history month."[41] Freeman once said on an interview with 60 Minutes' Mike Wallace, "I am going to stop calling you a white man and I'm going to ask you to stop calling me a black man."[40] Freeman supported the defeated proposal to change the Mississippi state flag, which contains the Confederate battle flag.[42][43]"

Thank you for the rebuttal,

Thank you for the rebuttal, and the reminder to cite or provide links if you are going to make accusations against (or for) someone...

This is the exact shit I live about the Daily Paul

For Freedom!
The World is my country, all mankind is my brethren, to do good is my religion.

Brilliant! I love it! Thank

Brilliant! I love it! Thank you tragedyandhope!

Totally Sweet !

Nice work ;-)

Only problem

The only problem that I have with the way some people like Carl Seagan think is this, that humanity is at fault for destroying the planet, I think it is to simplistic. It's really only a very small percent, dare I say probably about 1% that want war, and the rest of humanity just wants to live in peace. You can't blame some leaders for wanting to defend themselves and their people from insane dictators that want to rule the world. The result is war, which is caused by a very few people attacking others, who in return defend themselves. I don't know, maybe I'm wrong, just my opinion for now. :)

read a book called...

Ishmael. It'll make you realize just how screwed our race is.

I Believe You Are Right

These people that want all the power are going to die just like all of the rest of us. But for some unknown reason they think they will live forever. Having power will not stop the fate of death. Death will stop the fate of power. Why can't we just get along?
