I searched before posting this- "no matches found"

a pretty useful bit of info when it comes to drawing conclusions about many of the mysteries of life and beyond-


"The following are suggested as tools for testing arguments and detecting fallacious or fraudulent arguments"

Carl Sagan's approach in "The Demon Haunted World: Science as a candle in the dark", was to extensively quote the tabloid The Weekly World News. His results are skewed at best as a result.

I did not know that

I still think the outline is useful, don't you?

Right. His views on looking for facts in this baloney detection kit thing are valid, but he himself disregarded all real physical data on many things regarding the unknown. Especially UFOs/extraterrestrial visitation. Whatever the case, Sagan did not practice what he preached.
