Happy Twentieth: Pale Blue Dot

This month, the Menoeceus Blog published an entry on Epicurean Extremes, and I published the piece “For the ARE Gods …” about Epicurean theology, finished a blog series in celebration of the Epicurean poet Horace, had the great pleasure of reading a book by Raoul Vaneigem titled De l’inhumanité de la religion, and published a book review on it. It was by far one of the most enjoyable and inspiring reads I’ve had in a long time, and my hope is that the review did it some justice.

Since one of the observations made in “For there ARE Gods” is that Epicureans seem to have been the Carl-Sagans of antiquity, this Twentieth I decided to share an inspiring sermon by Carl Sagan on our true place in the universe.
