Fwd: Carl Sagan Predicts Our Countries Future

I had seen this.  He has a point that if people don't understand science then they don't know the difference between real science and fake science.

However, most people have very little need or ability to understand science.

Back when they announced that they were going to try to find the "Higgs Boson" using the "Large Hadron Collider", the naturally curious person that I am asked the questions, "What the hell is a 'boson'?", and "What the hell is a 'hadron'?"   I have since learned enough physics to understand these concepts.  It has become a hobby of mine to study physics.  As a result, I have the kind of knowledge that 99% of the population would find useless.

Carl Sagan's show was really good.

However, I don't fully trust him as a source.  In his show, Cosmos, he said that free-market capitalism was dangerous.  He later bragged about smoking marijuana.
