While Cosmos is simply ignoring the life-friendly fine-tuning of our planet, other scientists see it as an important question to investigate.
Driven by a materialistic agenda, Cosmos shuts up as haunted the tabooed territory of religion’s positive influence on the development of science.
It’s only when the scientific details are elided or distorted, or creatively reimagined, that materialism can still stand up in light of what we now know.
Materialists project a religion-friendly image because popular culture expects it, while at the same time they make arguments to erode religious belief.
Isaac Newton went much farther than modern intelligent design theory. He argued that the astronomical evidence points inexorably to the God of theistic belief.
