Day 55: Stardust

Dear Pope Francis,

A quote today from Neil deGrasse Tyson. (And, yes, I know he’s an atheist. But, he has a good point to make.)

“So you’re made of detritus [from exploded stars]. Get over it. Or better yet, celebrate it. After all, what nobler thought can one cherish than that the universe lives within us all?”
― Neil deGrasse Tyson, Death by Black Hole: And Other Cosmic Quandaries

Your friend,



  • Hi Kevin,

    Thought you might be interested in this clip of Neil deGrassee Tyson where he makes the distinction between atheist and agnostic.

    • Katherine —

      Thanks so much for the comment and the link. Really interesting. I guess I should amend the post to say he’s agnostic, though I don’t like being revisionist. So I hope people view your video.

      Thanks for checking out my blog and archives!!!

Got anything to say? Go ahead and leave a comment!
