Carl Sagan’s “The Marriage of Skepticism and Wonder”

Taken from “The Demon Haunted World” (1996).

The full essay can be found here:
http://alexpetrov.com/memes/sci/skept_wonder.html

Please go to Amazon to get the whole book! It’s a classic!

The phrases here that resonate with me:
"Mere skepticism"
"Dawning of a wild surmise" : )
