Agree or disagree? —Carl Sagan

"Fanatic ethnic or religious or national identifications are a little difficult to support when we see our planet as a fragile, blue crescent fading to become an inconspicuous point of light against the bastion and citadel of the stars." —Carl Sagan

  • Does this include fanatic atheism because when I see our fragile blue crescent I'm amazed by all we are and have, I see the work of my creator.

  • It would have been simple to say that fanaticism shouldn't be supported. No need for all the fancy shmancy words, lol I agree with that idea.
    Problem is... most people have their own personal definition of "fanatic", and unfortunately, more often than not, it's simply someone who believes in somethign I don't.
