Today’s Atheism quote comes from the late Carl Sagan.
“Finding the occasional straw of truth awash in a great ocean of confusion and bamboozle requires intelligence, vigilance, dedication and courage. But if we don’t practice these tough habits of thought, we cannot hope to solve the truly serious problems that face us — and we risk becoming a nation of suckers, up for grabs by the next charlatan who comes along.” – Carl Sagan
A great quote but I worry we are far past the stage of becoming a nation of suckers. We are already there. In my view it’s a question if we can move back to the days we were only worried about being suckers.
