Beliefs: Science and Pseusoscience

Prof Kroto mentioned Carl Sagan in one of his talks today. His book and video titled "Demons haunted world"...

I am listening to his videos. He is blasting all pseudoscience in the most composed way. Telling us how to withhold our beliefs until we find a compelling evidence either way. Talking about virtually anything, if we have the evidence to believe something, believe it; if we dont, withhold the belief. Dont disbelieve. The implications are far larger in contemporary world with the deadly combination of ignorance and technology...

And the way he is talking about the disease that he has which could turn into leukemia if not treated. I am deeply moved.

Cheers to science and the power that it gives us, to understand.
