    Right now I am really enjoying the course on the Gnostics. I love mythology and am a Christian. I find it fabulous that there was this period of time when alternative versions of Christianity's existed, including versions that disavowed the God of the old testament. I also really liked The History of Life. It was very fascinating hearing about our current understanding of the billions of years that life existed before the first tetrapod made it onto land.

    The first tetrapod made landfall almost 400 million years, and finally evolved into a highly advanced life form known as the iPod. icon_razz.gif

    I'm interested in hearing about what happened before the "big bang," which is a slowly eroding theory. It seems that the latest calculations people are coming up with point to a universe (or multiverse) that has no calculable beginning or end with our current understanding of maths.
