I didn't get that all from the OP.
No reference to "through the wormhole" that I saw, why would that show even come up when the subject is the "Cosmos" series..Sagan's or Neil's.
Yet behind a comic sensibility that is sometimes provocative and sometimes puerile, Mr. MacFarlane is a committed fan of the first “Cosmos” who laments a modern society that he says has lost its fascination with science.
“We’re obsessed with angels and vampires and whatnot,” Mr. MacFarlane, 37, said in a telephone interview, “when there are many more exciting and very real and much more spectacular things to be excited about, that are right in our own planetary backyard.”
When the original “Cosmos” (subtitled “A Personal Voyage”) was first shown on PBS from September to December 1980, it was a watershed moment for science-themed television programming.
Oh look, another anti-religion echo-chamber thread for militant atheists to circle-jerk in.
Oh look, another anti-religion echo-chamber thread for militant atheists to circle-jerk in. If any of you actually watched the show instead of just spewing Degrasse Tyson memes on your favorite subreddit you would see that the show started out not about science, but by trashing religion in particular the Catholic church. Nobody asked for that, the show Cosomos brought in religion ITSELF - and the funny part is they weren't even factually correct!

I don't have a problem with hard science, I don't have a problem with religion, I have a problem with propaganda and falsification. The people with "closed minds" are those who can't even accept the fact that others think differently than them, aka most of the people in this thread - surrounding themselves with some false air of superiority because they don't mind insulting those who believe in a deity.
