LISTEN: Not even your Bible-thumping relatives could hate this set of scientific Christmas carols
Non-religious science buffs looking to mark the upcoming holiday season finally have an album truly made for them, courtesy of a British duo, the Friendly Atheist reported.
The album, Scientific Songs of Praise, reimagines traditional carols and “use them to celebrate natural wonders of science; from the big bang to the evolution of life on Earth,” according to the group’s Facebook page.
For example, “O Holy Night” becomes “Oh Satellite,” complete with images from the International Space Station. The new lyrics are credited to Tariq Abdulla, with vocal performances by Natalie Windsor.
“Under the clouds, while half the world is dreaming, you’re probing questions of intrigue and depth,” she sings. “A thrill of hope, the joy of exploration, the world is spinning an ever-breaking dawn.”
The video can be seen below.
The five-song album also contains tributes to the Large Hadron Collider, and an ode to tectonic plates set to the tune of “Amazing Grace,” as seen here.
The album is scheduled to be released on Dec. 20, but can be ordered in advance at the group’s website.
