"A Science Icon Died 17 Years Ago. In His Last Interview, He Made A Warning That Gives Me Goosebumps" (Rajiv Narayan)



Carl Sagan inspired a generation of scientists with his work in and out of the classroom. But he didn't always present science with cheer. In this clip, he passionately defends science with a grave warning. It's something we all need to hear. 

Carl Sagan's last interview with Charlie Rose (Full Interview)


"Let's look a little more deeply into that. What is faith. It is belief in the absence of evidence. Now, I do not propose to tell anybody what to believe. But for me, believing when there is no compelling evidence is a mistake. The idea is to withhold belief until there is compelling evidence. And if the universe does not comply with our predispositions, okay, then we have the wrenching obligation to accommodate to the way the universe really is." — Carl Sagan
