    Welcome to this week's edition of #IntotheCosmos, the podcast that can be heard every Wednesday at 1 PM ET.

    Hosts Ej Garr and Frank Dell'Apa get you ready for the U.S Open Cup outing against the New York Red Bulls, and rewind to the New York Cosmos big win over NYCFC in the fourth round of the Cup at Shuart Stadium last week.

    We venture beyond the Cosmos a bit this week with the team having some time off and discuss the U.S Men's National Team roster. We will also talk about the antics of Clint Dempsey this past week in the U.S Cup that led to a 3-match ban in MLS play, and Jurgen Klinsmann's approach for the Gold Cup.

    There are many high-profile European players making their way to the states, and Frank is in NY this week to be part of the Steve Nash Showdown event in New York's China Town.

    We reveal the early portion of the fall schedule for the NY Cosmos, and review the spring success of the team as well, so buckle up for a ride ... Into the Cosmos!

    In this episode, blogger Sacerdotus gives his review on the remake of "COSMOS: A Spacetime Odyssey."  This program was rehatched by atheist cartoonist and comedian, Seth Macfarlane and is hosted by astrophysicist, Neil Degrasse Tyson.

    The program is meant to convey scientific history and facts using visuals and layman's language in hopes of educating viewers.  However, the program has had its controversy with its indirect attacks against religion, particularly the Catholic Church and God.  

    In its pilot episode, heretical Dominican friar Giordano Bruno is presented as a hero and victim of the Catholic Church.  The historical facts surrounding him and the Church are erroneously presented to make the latter look like an enemy to science and progress.  Sacerdotus explains why the show got the history wrong.

    Moreover, in follow up episodes, Dr. Tyson insinuates that no God is needed to create or maintain the universe and that everything has a natural explanation. Sacerdotus counters this by exposing the atheistic shadow behind the script Tyson reads during taping. 

    Should Catholics and other theists watch the show?
    Is the show good to learn science from?

    Sacerdotus answers these and other questions.
