The 3-Minute Video That Will Make Any Problem You Have Seem Astonishingly Trivial

This is the only home we’ve ever known. There’s no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.

This video narrated by astronomer Carl Sagan, definitely puts into perspective how tiny we are in relation to the whole universe. Thus every individual is unique in it. The role that he is playing is crucial as a part of nature. Nature is undoubtedly a wonderful creation, which is designed to house millions of living species.

Living on earth is a miracle. However it also reminds me that despite the enormity and vastness of space. Earth is the only home we have; the only place life ever being recorded. It is the only place we ever lived. As we all know every living creature on earth needs a favourable surrounding to live. Human beings are not on exception. They also need some basic needs from the earth to live. So if we make this pleasant and healthy nature, a bad place to live, no doubt, it will be the end of life because as chief Seattle the great Red Indian chief once said if anything is done to the earth it will soon happen to the life on earth. We need to protect it leaving aside all differences. Deal more kindly with one another. Preserve and cherish.

Most profound video I have seen in a very long time. It says so much in such a short amount of time. Humanity breaks my heart a little more each day. Love is the only answer.

Our planet like all the other planets were random events. Our one moon vs mar’s two moons, all chance. Most of space is uninhabitable. We are just lucky to have evolved after an asteroid smashed into the Yucitan peninsula and destroyed life 65 million years ago. The Andromeda galaxy is on a collision course with our own and it will end all life, but not before our sun burns out like the billions have before it. Might I add we would be alive if stars hadent exploded and release the elements that we are comprised of? If there was a… Read more »

Because on that pale blue dot, that insignificant speck in the vastness of the cosmos, the only true god was made manifest to an insignificant and often persecuted tribe of bronze age nomads, and their religion rising to dominance in the following millennia of social development in the western region of that same pale blue dot was not an accident of politics. Science has given us the capability to look at our planet from unimaginable distances, themselves a mere infinitesimal fraction of the vastness of the cosmos, and that is obviously proof that a deity who is a socio-historical contemporary… Read more »

Try to compare above video with this message http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGxRWCmwSDE&list=PL9BAE4530C91B679F Despite of some problems with English the author loaded a lot of editing work in his video and I share his point of view,l that such a magnificent and huge universe, wasn’t created by a chance, coincidence or by itself. By the way you pseudo-scientists, how do you proof that there is no creator of this miraclious universe? Can you present any evidence for that? You tale a milion watches, then inassembly it into single parts, then through it around a milion places in your country, Afterwards, observe every place constantly… Read more »

Harsh comment Rudolf. Confident religions, and ideologies placed us where we are today. If there were another possible planet to navigate to beyond this one in time and space then humans would only be bringing the same ~ religions and ideologies with them…which relates to war, my religion is better than your religion etc. Just bring the knowledge that a higher power (God) would like things different to how we humans show it on this planet. The real power is in not underscoring our responsibilities to make this home a better place for all and if that means everyone returning… Read more »

When me meed Andromeda in 3.75 billion years far from being destroyed our galaxies will merge, our own sun will be at the end of it’s life if is still here, the earth will be toast and the continual rebirth of stars will ensure that life continues elsewhere; and i don’t have any problems with that.

Guest, I agree. The last remark at the end of the film : “the creator is powerful, etc” is a thought out of the blue. Totally irrelevant. We just don/’t know where the universe originates from. Admit that. Don’t speculate about explanations, causes, reasons…. WE JUST DON”T KNOW.

not once in this whole video was the word or the implication of god mentioned. I don’t know where you got your book from which you quote but it is after all just a book. And I am glad that you appreciate it. I prefer James Patterson myself. He says a lot of great things too and he is real. BTW wasn’t the character in your book not a carpenter?? I don’t remember him being an architecture. Maybe a different author sry.

Sharing the fruitcake of religion, I see (after all, it is in season). Just remember that religion, like fruitcake, is not for everyone, and just because you think it tastes good doesn’t mean it is good for you. By the way… you do have churches to conduct your sermons in, do you not? Or is your religion so disparate to survive that you have to try and indoctrinate at every opportunity? A-man! ;P

Again, we don’t know. In the meantime instead of waiting for
who or whatever to come “save us”, what about each taking responsibility for
self and each other. Choice, Action and Consequence. Use your own initiative and don’t lean on someone else’s belief, dogma, or excuse. We have the science, the ability, just lose the ego, arrogance and greed. Love comes with birth, not religion. Conditioning determines its longevity.

Do you think the Israelis give one hoot about humanity or civilization on this pale blue dot? After all the killing and blood shed, they have not learned anything at all. And they are supposed to be smart. What a laugh. There is no place on this pale blue dot for such negative mean spirited ingrates. Perhaps Pluto would better for such a bunch of ___________.

So who gets to decide what we tolerate and what we do not? I don’t give a fig what anyone believes, but I am completely intolerant of complacent inaction. God (who is incidentally of course on my side) will sort it, so I can carry on dumping what I like into the environment. Pah.

Since you asked, I think that “the Israelis” are made of up good people, bad people, fools, geniuses, idiots, wife-beaters, saints, just like every other nation on this earth. To generalise about any one group of people negates whatever point you are attempting to make.

Both comments in the above article are purely speculative and sadly, hugely egotistic. Even in the midst of trying to appreciate beauty, the author states “the only place life ever recorded” and “the only place we’ve ever lived”. Neither of which is a remote certainty. Life exists everywhere, in everything. I believe there is abundant life, right here in our own solar system. Not to mention the enormity of the rest of our Galaxy, Local Galactic Neighborhood and Universe! However, I most certainly agree that we must cherish our “home”. We humans are destroying all that we have in not… Read more »
