Carl Sagan's: A Universe Not Made For Us
Carl Sagan had such a beautiful way of putting reason and science above mythological stories used by ancient people to explain the world around them. Thought I would share: http://myscienceacademy.org/2013/02/25/a...ocentrism/

Yeah,good video.

On a slightly different note,I've always thought Sagan's way of talking was kind of funny.

Thanks for sharing.

I remember watching Cosmos on PBS...his voice lulled me to sleep and I would dream of stars. Smile

One of the few truly happy memories of my childhood.

After mom and dad, Carl Sagan had the biggest impact on who I am today. He's like the best friend I never met...

Indeed. It's a real shame that he and Christopher Hitchens died before I could meet them. No
