Ironically, the network responsible for this series is none other than Fox itself.

The owners of Fox are more into making money than they are into pleasing the morons that watch Fox News.

Remember the producer of the new Cosmos is Seth MacFarlane, who created Family Guy and is also on Fox. Who makes a TON of money for Fox. So I'd say the creos can complain all they want, Fox sees dollar signs on this show and/or doesn't want to piss off their biggest cash cow.

Re: Inner Fish
I thought that it was peculiar that they would say that the fact that mammals were processing so much information caused their brains to grow.

Is that right? If I do lots of calculus will my children have bigger brains?

I think our brains have already evolved to perform calculus. Maybe if they did higher levels of computing or processing they might? I don't know.

Re: NCSE comments
In general where there was nobody to observe there isn't any way of having real knowledge about claims involving that period, it all remains theory, guesswork, fantasy.

It's even a wonder how murders get solved with all those theories and fantasies and guesswork about the unobserved death of a person, eh?
