Quotes : Carl Sagan : Atheism, Skepticism

"We can judge our progress by the courage of our questions and the depth of our answers, our willingness to embrace what is true rather than what feels good." - Carl Sagan
"Atheism is more than just the knowledge that gods do not exist, and that religion is either a mistake or a fraud. Atheism is an attitude, a frame of mind that looks at the world objectively, fearlessly, always trying to understand all things as a part of nature." - Carl Sagan
"You could just as well say that an agnostic is a deeply religious person with at least a rudimentary knowledge of human fallibility." - Carl Sagan
"We wish to find the truth, no matter where it lies. But to find the truth we need imagination and skepticism both. We will not be afraid to speculate, but we will be careful to distinguish speculation from fact." - Carl Sagan
"It is the tension between creativity and skepticism that has produced the stunning and unexpected findings of science." - Carl Sagan
