Hope and wonder!

Both Cosmos series (2014 and 2020) are the best things I've ever seen. They are not anti-religious or anti-God, just anti the "one true God" concept that has contributed to 2000 years of worldwide antagonism. I feel they create almost create a Church of Science, full of mysteries, hope and wonder.
