Carl Sagan; A Tribute

fungrimfungrim

Really, I don’t have much to say. I’m not a scientist. I’m barely a sceptic. And I certainly cannot express myself on any level even aproaching that of the late Carl Sagan. But there is a blog-athon. Go there. Read what far smarter people than me have to say. And if you by chance have not read The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark you should. If nothing else, consider, from Billions and Billions: Thoughts of Life and Death at the Brink of the Millenium:

The world is so exquisite, with so much love and moral depth, that there is no reason to deceive ourselves with pretty stories for which there’s little good evidence. Far better, it seems to me, in our vulnerability, is to look Death in the eye and to be grateful every day for the brief but magnificent opportunity that life provides.
