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!

"Do want"

This is great, so don't listen to the below comment. Blind faith IS silly! Now, I am no opponent to religion, and i do not think this flash is either, however the flash illustrates the very real dangers of blind faith without reason so I like it. Great message, great style, and I Love it!

Amazing Animation

A messege without words, its hard but doable, and you my friend nailed it. Love the concept, the artwork, the messege was well portrayed and delivered. My personal opinion, as a beleaver, I do not agree with the messege, but we are all rightful to our opinions. 5/5, 10/10.

Great

I thought it was a damned good. Very interesting. And I think people really know how to waste their time over-analyzing and nitpicking every fucking detail when they should really focus of the point of the animation itself.

But I'd have to say that most people on this planet are fucking dumb.

Thumbs up to you, and middlefingers to everyone else! ^-^

Clever story

At first I thought ' Eh, another wall-e ripoff. ' But then, when I saw the religion concept getting in, I got interested. I can't believe I almost closed the window over such a cool flash. =|

At the end, when you see the ' logs ' of the robots... Oh my. I never saw it coming. Color me blind.

Great animation

The arguement isn't that religion makes you stupid or that logic is always right which is how most people are taking this. The idea is that if you don't use logic at all and you believe religion will solve all of you problems, it could be your downfall. Logic is a way of making choices that factually make sense (i.e. sun will recharge your solar battery so get in the sun). Religion is a way of making choices on things that don't make sense to you. So science and religion do not have to combat each other, there merely can answer what the other cannot.
