Carl Sagan

Thank you Carl Sagan





"Each star system is an island in space, quarantined from its neighbors by the light-years. I can imagine creatures evolving into glimmerings of knowledge on innumerable worlds, every one of them assuming at first their puny planet and paltry few suns to be all that is. We grow up in isolation. Only slowly do we teach ourselves the Cosmos."
Carl Sagan

"And at the very heart of life on Earth-the proteins that control cell chemistry, and the nucleic acids that carry the hereditary instructions-we find these molecules to be essentially identical in all the plants and animals. An oak tree and I are made of the same stuff. If you go far enough back, we have a common ancestor."  
Carl Sagan

"Atheism is more than just the knowledge that gods do not exist, and that religion is either a mistake or a fraud. Atheism is an attitude, a frame of mind that looks at the world objectively, fearlessly, always trying to understand all things as a part of nature."
Carl Sagan

"Some people think of God as an outsized, light-skinned male with a long white
beard, sitting on a throne somewhere up there in the sky, busily tallying the fall
of every sparrow. Others-for example, Baruch Spinoza and Albert Einstein-
considered God to be essentially the sum total of the physical laws which
describe the universe. I do not know of any compelling evidence for
anthropomorphic patriarchs controlling human destiny from some hidden
celestial vantage point, but it would be madness to deny the existence of
physical laws."
