I like Carl Sagan a lot. But I have a feeling he would be insulted by people worshiping him in such a manner

Sagan had no Dark Side. He was naive and idealistic in some regards, but no Darkness.

Nonsense. He was very much opposed to nuclear saber rattling.

I think you've somehow confused Carl Sagan with Edward Teller.

I like that idea "We are the universe looking at itself". Pretty cool.

Dawkinism is a good idea too.

No.

He was more like "the Lord of Dorkness"


Which is exactly why aspies line up to sell their souls to him!

Lol!

Carl Sagan advocated rockets powered by the explosions of atomic bombs so that makes him the dark nuclear lord.

What exactly is "dark" about Project Orion?

Oh, that's probably true; "environmentalists" are dumber than bags of hammers.
