Science Quote – Carl Sagan on “Science and Authority”

Full quote: “Science is more than a body of knowledge, it’s a way of thinking. A way of skeptically interrogating the universe, with a fine understanding of human fallibility. If we are not able to ask skeptical questions, to interrogate those who tell us that something is true, to be skeptical of those in authority, then we’re up for grabs, for the next charlatan, political or religious, who comes ambling along.” From Sagan’s interview with Charlie Rose on his book “The Demon Haunted World: Science As A Candle in the Dark”.
