    The Varieties of Scientific Experience.

    I just finished reading this book, which was compiled from transcripts from the Gifford Lectures in 1985.  The full title is "The Varieties of Scientific Experience: A Personal View of the Search for God".  A very good read.  I can't say it was really...

    I First Read:

    Cosmos some years ago, and it was mindblowing! I have since read it 6 or 7 times, I think. I then read Pale Blue Dot & his fiction piece Contact. Also have a copy of Dragons Of Eden that I am in the middle of reading.

    Sagan is one of my heroes

    and has done more than perhaps any other individual to shape the way I see the world and humanity. I have read most of his books and watched Cosmos a dozen times. His basic insight, that the earth and humanity are not very important in the cosmic scheme of things, is profound...

    Happy 80th Birthday Carl!

    Here’s a little artistic tribute to my and many others’ greatest inspiration as a scientific storyteller. That his impact is still so great in 2014, when so many who share his meditations and explanations and dreams for humanity weren’t even out of diapers when he passed...

    Sagan And Science Saved My Soul

    I'd never heard of this incredible man until a few years ago. One night, whilst browsing through our cable TV channels, my Dad gasped. He clicked on a show titled, 'Cosmos'. 'I loved watching this show when I was younger. I'd forgotten about this guy. Watch this, Jibs, you...

    A Really Good Interview

    I found an old, really good interview of Carl on the Tonight Show, guest hosted by John Denver. Denver gets dissed big time about 50 seconds in. You'll really want to see this if you're a Sagan fan, a John Denver fan, or just a science fan. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

    Where Have All The "Sagans" Gone?

    I honestly hope that somewhere out there, there is a man or woman who can re-connect the public with science...  I look around these days and it is very depressing. -It sickens me that these days scientists supposedly = 'elitists', and scientific "Theory" has been equated to...

    I'm A Lesbian, Accept It Or Forget It!

    Hi girls, the article I'm writing is based on lesbians and people not accepting them. I'm 17 and in my younger years I was persistantly teased for bieng a lesbian. Knowing you are a lesbian is a hard and emotianal thing to break through and be certain that you'll be accepted for...

    Not Alone

    As a boy and young man, I naively thought the world was full of people pretty much just like me, who could someday become my lifelong friends and family once we got to know each other. Painfully, over many years, I learned this was terribly far from the case. Then, a chance...
