“The Magic of Reality” by Richard Dawkins.
I loved every bit of the truth ( #science ). I believe in research. I believe in evidence and facts, but the fact of the matter is... I do not believe in every myth, magic trick or miracle, though in the end let’s agree to disagree.
I believe in miracles. I believe in a magical connection between myself, my family, my friends and the universe that nobody can explain.
Take the spectroscope example, an instrument used to calculate what elements are present in a star.
Stars so far away we cannot calculate the distances between us.
We disperse or separate white light and use color reflection to calculate distances between a star and other stars who’s distance we cannot calculate to estimate how long the universe has been in existence because we can estimate the speed that stars, planets, and galaxies are pushing themselves apart at ?
13 to 14 billion years since the beginning ?
1 Billion years is a rather large discrepancy.
Just say we do not know, and until then it’s a miracle.
The magic is connection. If you have a connection with the universe, only then can you understand the miracle. - 11 minutes ago
