Oh FFS, Discovery channel!!!
When I was little I wanted to believe in Dragons and Unicorns and Mermaids.
Arthur Conan Doyle's father was convinced the Fairies existed.
We crave the feeling of wonder. The desire to feel awe...
But one grows up and learns that this universe and the tiny blue planet on which we live is a MASSIVE and beautiful place. We ought to take better care of it.
Watch Carl Sagan's Cosmos
or BBC' Prof. Iain Stewart's "How to Grow A Planet"
There is so much to wonder at.
It's right there in front of us.
And for some reason, Discovery Channel has forgotten this.
