“Science’s only sacred truth is that there are no sacred truths. All assumptions must be critically examined. Arguments from authority are worthless. Whatever is inconsistent with the facts – no matter how fond of it we are – must be discarded or revised.” — Carl Sagan

And that is all I have to say about that.

Carl Sagan is without a doubt one of my favourite people. Ever. He is that to a great many people I guess. In this video a creationist tries to argue that Evolution isn’t correct… for a number of reasons and in classic creatard debating tactic refuses to let the man answer. We all know why he let Carl refuse to answer – it’s never pleasant to have one’s dearly held beliefs destroyed…

Evolution, it’s such a simple thing that so many people refuse to see.

Anyway, here’s Carl. He’s the most awesome.

To Carl.

Quote: Carl Sagan

“The significance of our lives and our fragile planet is then determined only by our own wisdom and courage. We are the custodians of life’s meaning. We long for a Parent to care for us, to forgive us our errors, to save us from our childish mistakes. But knowledge is preferable to ignorance. Better by far to embrace the hard truth than a reassuring fable. If we crave some cosmic purpose, then let us find ourselves a worthy goal.” — Carl Sagan, Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space

Neil DeGrasse Tyson. A fitting successor to Carl Sagan. The world is made better by people like Neil DeGrasse Tyson and I am happy to know that there are people like him in it.
