“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.”

“Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence” – The Demon Haunted World
I may make this my first book of 2018.
The Demon-Haunted World is a great read. I highly recommend it to everyone here.
The earth is flat, Carl Knew
Kind of like the carbon tax/ ‘sustainability’ agenda.
Wait….. Sagan was part of that.
