Carl Sagan on Religion, Science, Pseudoscience, Politics, UFOs and Aliens

Show Sidebar

Carl Sagan was interviewed by Charlie Rose on his book The Demon-Haunted World back in the 90s. The video is twenty minutes long.

They talk about science, religion and pseudo-science. Carl is worried that with less people who are able to understand basics about science and more people who listen to populists and propaganda that science is just one "opinion" among many, the human kind has got a huge problem.

By keeping people stupid, populists are able to cancel out the positive effect of scientific insight in order to manipulate the people for various reasons.

This foresight is impressive. These days, we do have to face the consequences of more and more people denying pure logic and proven scientific results.

Further more, they talk about the Loch Ness monster, UFOs and Aliens.
