RE: What Are You Currently Reading?
Just got my copy of Carl Sagan's "Demon-Haunted World" in the mail about
a week ago and have been reading it since then, absolutely incredible book.

Here's a quick quote that I really enjoyed
and I think could represent the whole book:

"There are no forbidden questions in science, no matters too sensitive or
delicate to be probed, no sacred truths. That openness to new ideas, combined
with the most rigorous, skeptical scrutiny of all ideas, sifts the wheat from the
chaff. It makes no difference how smart, august, or beloved you are. You must
prove your case in the face of determined, expert criticism. Diversity and debate
are valued. Opinions are encouraged to contend - substantively and in depth."
