Hello Newgrounds Viewers,
In my latest cartoon titled 'We Are Science Probes', scientific explorers visiting a post-apocalyptic Earth begin to question their mission after uncovering certain historical artifacts.

I hope you like it.

It features the song "Say Goodbye" (used with permission) by the amazing band 'The Sun'.

Thanks for tuning in,
Billy

Update:
To the Newgrounds viewers, Thank you for the daily 2nd place award and all the reviews. I really appreciate people taking the time to leave such thought provoking posts.

As for the theme of the cartoon, it isn't an anti God story. I was trying to make a point about dogmatic thinking and how this can lead to a lack of understanding. At least that is what I was hoping to do. The funny thing is the cartoon is a little extreme in it's own way, but I chock this up to dramatic license and my lack of skills. HA!

Thanks again for all the views and reviews!

Time Enough at Last billy blob :)

Very well made I love the scene at the library when the probe finds the broken glasses a nice little nod to Rod Serling's Twilight Zone "Time Enough at Last " You guys should check it out its a classic episode I'm sure the writer got the inspiration from this

Great work very thought provoking

I enjoy these type of animations more then ones with explosions and violence, it was very thought provoking and i believe it encourages ppl to be like the robots and seek knowledge on their own and don't believe everything you were taught from childhood til adulthood without researching for yourself

cool thinking.

Ha! I really like this one ^^ These wobots without their logic plug are very similar to some Catholics I know , ha ha . BTW why would alien species do a such plug to their probes ?? I couldn't think of any reason for that kind of plug installation....
These probes got bad luck on the book choice , he he... Great animation, i really would want to be capable of doing such animations...
