Over the last few months I saw a handful of threads regarding Carl Sagan and his "legacy".
Many people *admire* this man for his "contribution" to science, however something about him has never sat quite right with me.
Within the last Carl Sagan thread I came across I stated "He was either very stoopid, very ignortant, or had the purpose of disinformation".
The other members replied something along the lines of "Aha, as if you have the balls to say that".
However, I maintained that opinion, and had it (IMO) confirmed yesterday.
I had it confirmed via realising he was a member of the CFR.
A little lightbulb went of in my head, and all those disconnected dots suddenly joined together.
Now, I don't know if that fact is common knowledge or not, but it was news to me.
So upon reading this thread:
I thought I might just remind the 307 members who believe he *truely* was searching for alien life.
Stoopid/ignorant/disinformation... My choice words as *I* am well aware, and *millions* of other people are well aware alien life does exist, and does
visit the Earth.
I'm not interested in convincing skeptics, one day you'll know, and it will be one of the most pleasing things you ever realise. However, I (we) do
exspect the likes of Carl Sagan to *know* the facts...
So why the sharade Mr. Sagan?
