Deep Thoughts

This morning one of my favorite webcomics, made a comment about a news story that was circulating about Stephen Hawking and the Pope.

Anyway, the story resonated with me and Scott Kurtz blogged this paragraph by Carl Sagan.

"Those afraid of the universe as it really is, those who pretend to nonexistent knowledge and envision a Cosmos centered on human beings will prefer the fleeting comforts of superstition. They avoid rather than confront the world. But those with the courage to explore the weave and structure of the Cosmos, even where it differs profoundly from their wishes and prejudices, will penetrate its deepest mysteries."
-Carl Sagan
