Space and Religion

I've been pontificating a lot about space recently, and was having a hard time articulating the sense of wonder that it inspires in me. Here was a good take: The Dish pointed me to "If Only We Had Taller Been," a great Ray Bradbury poem, that in turn pointed me to a Neil deGrasse Tyson talk where he says
"The line separating religious epiphany and feelings created by space exploration is awfully, awfully thin."
