Coming Soon of the Day: Neil Degrasse Tyson Will Host the Sequel of Carl Sagan’s Cosmos
Though it’s been quietly in the works since 2011, Fox has officially confirmed that Carl Sagan’s monumental 1970 sci-ed miniseries Cosmos: A Personal Voyage will be getting an updated sequel next year, which will consist of 13 episodes produced by Family Guy’s Seth MacFarlane and hosted by one of the Internet’s most celebrated astrophysicists, Neil Degrasse Tyson. Fox is hoping the show will have as much as of cultural impact as Carl Sagan’s original series, which still remains one of the most watched PBS series in the world to this day.

Sadly the semester is ending and behavioral neuroscience is over. The final lecture today was on free will and consciousness. Daniel Dennett came up in conversation, and I couldn’t help but smile at an atheist meme my professor used. I plan on looking more into philosophy this summer, even if it doesn’t sound like it’s my thing. Here’s a bit of Dennett’s thoughts on consciousness. Really interesting stuff.
Dante’s Inferno: a guide to hell
Always thought that the unbaptized baby/ virtuous pagan thing was a bunch of shit. You don’t get into heaven because God made you before he did the whole Jesus thing? Nonsense. Good story nonetheless.
Only 200ish pages, and it’s pretty interesting stuff. His hypothesis on how human evolution evolved is pretty interesting (to gauge the color of human skin, in short). Worth a read through!
Super busy but exciting stuff going on:
-Only like 10-ish days of class left
-It’s looking like I’ll be working in a neuroscience research lab next semester!
-Got me a construction job for the summer that involves a bit of travel and NOT minimum wage. Very adult like woo!
Hope you all are equally entertained with life right now. I’ll do my best to keep up on my blogging (:
