Neil deGrasse Tyson Laments Climate Science Denial But Billionaire ...

The good thing about science is that it’s true whether or not you believe in it.”   —   Neil deGrasse Tyson

(Believe it . . . or not – some of you – this is true.  And, no.  Science is not a faith/religion.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Happy 86th birthday to my Dad, in the great beyond!  Miss you, Pops!   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 04/13/16

Visual Description:  Our local cosmos.

FRAWH  =  WHARF,  NORGP  =  PRONG,  SAJTUD  =  ADJUST,  SLURPA  =  PULSAR   —   Giving us:  WRPROADTLSA

Clue/Question:  The atmospheres of Venus and Earth are – – – 

Answers:  WORLDS APART

(A nice challenging Jumble!  It looks like all the clue words are old favorites, and three of the four jumbles have been used before.  Only “frawh”  appears to be new.  I struggled to un-scramble “slurpa”.  I had to back into it, and that wasn’t easy, because without the letters from the last word the answer wasn’t all that obvious.  But, I saw enough to figure that out, so I knew I needed an S, an A, and an L.  The answer letter layout didn’t give the answer away, in my opinion.  I’m looking at the reduced size cartoon today – and for the next couple of days – so it’s hard to see the detail.  But, I was able to make out Neil deGrasse Tyson!  The planets are definitely a little murky, due to the reduction.  I think it’s Venus to the left and Earth to the right.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

I know I’m small but I’m also big.  I’m big because I’m connected to the universe, and the universe is connected to me.”   —   Neil deGrasse Tyson

(I just KNEW this was part of a larger quote!  My man, Tyson, LOVES to talk!  LOL!  I think some of it is because Neil loves to hear himself talk.  The other part though is that he loves to impart his knowledge upon others.  And, that is the part for which I’m grateful for.  Smart people are very entertaining.  Especially, well rounded smart people.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Pretending to know everything closes the door to finding out what’s really out there.”   —   Neil deGrasse Tyson

(Unfortunately, far too many people are all too comfortable in thinking that they already have the answers.  What’s worse is when they resent those of us who are seeking rational answers.  Don’t let that kind of mentality hinder your quest for actuality.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

True wisdom has a curious way of revealing to yourself your own true ignorance.”   —   Neil deGrasse Tyson

(Neil is an accomplished astrophysicist . . . among other things, so he can afford to compliment his own wisdom, in such a way.  All I can say is: the more I learn, the more I realize that I have a lot to learn.  And, there are many, many things that I will probably never be able to learn.  But, I have learned to accept that.  I keep plugging away though!  There’s a really good reason why the words learning and living are so frequently intermingled.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
