I came across an InterVarsity blog, and Andy Walsh wrote an article I find particularly interesting. http://blog.emergingscholars.org/2014/03/science-in-review-the-art-of-public-science-communication/

He makes some very insightful comments regarding the new Cosmos and the first three episodes aired so far. I agree with him. It seems that at least part of the point in Cosmos is to confront religion.

I like his points about communication, and I especially like his comments regarding vaccines. The comments to the article are worthwhile too.

Vaccines are God’s gift for human health. I thank God that our doctors and researchers have figured out how make them and keep them effective.
