One movie I have probably watched more than any other, and still discover new things, is Contact,

Professor Carl Sagan wrote the most perfect SciFi book, which was turned into the most perfect SciFi movie.
OMG. That is one of my favourite movies ever! I love it. I refuse to read the book bc I don't want my perception of the movie changed, but yeah, it was my fav movie for many years. Then Avatar happened.

Will always love Contact with Jodie. Incredible achievement.

Carl was such a good man too, he was kind and his eyes always shone with wisdom and compassion.
I miss his face.
@NativePortlander Here is the thing. MY own spirituality is mine, no one else's and it's got zero to do with anyone else, or any religion.
I don't justify it to anyone.

And science is science and I do believe that science one day with be also about spirituality because spirituality, unlike, religion and all that bad crap that can potentially come out of 'religious zealots', well, here is the thing: spirituality is not dependent on anyone to EXIST. It just is, whether you feel it or not. It doesn't need your money or your faith or your monuments, etc. It is not about things.
When science is ready, it will get there...It may take many years but I know it will. There can be no other logical conclusion :)

As the good Reverend said in the movie [quote]Logic can't even touch it.[/quote] Amen to that :)

@LunadelobosIAMTHEDRAGON You have the quote misapplied, faith has no logic because it is based on the lack of evidence, it will never be proven. The pursuit of science is to discover and prove evidence, that is why so many scientists dismiss religion and spirituality, religion and spirituality cannot be proven.
@NativePortlander I don't need you or a book or any person to agree with me, it is my spirituality: No one can touch it.

And that's fine about the quote.

Take care and thanks so much for amazing memories and really great conversation. :) ✨

Always thought Sagan was an incredibly insightful and thought provoking in his writing and presentation.
Given how messed up current political thinking is, this is one of my favourite quotes from him.
[quote] They won't listen. Do you know why ? Because they have fixed notions about the past. Any change would be blasphemy in their eyes. Even if it were the truth. They want their traditions.[/quote]

@Picklebobble2 A very profound quote by Professor Sagan, he was by far our most learned philosopher of our day and age, a modern day Bertrand Russell.

@NativePortlander And much admired by today's Cosmologists and Philosophers.
I know Neil Degrasse Tyson often cites his work and philosophy in his lectures I've seen.
@Picklebobble2 There will never ever be anyone like Carl Sagan.

@LunadelobosIAMTHEDRAGON Oh I don't know.
Don't inspirers go on to inspire others ?
In time maybe people will come to see Degrasse Tyson or Brian Cox or Michio Kaku in the same way 😃
@NativePortlander In one of her books Shirley M. said he had a terrific sense of humour
and he was also in at least one ST Next Generation Episode.

What you said, it rings a bell. I read it a while ago, about him and AI.

@LunadelobosIAMTHEDRAGON Professor Hawking also did a few hilarious cameos on the Big Bang Theory as well :)
