Cleveland Meeting at Mayfield Branch Library
Our November meeting will represent our participation in the annual Sagan Day celebration promoted by CFI. Below are notable quotes from that great communicator of science, the inimitable Carl Sagan:
“If we long to believe that the stars rise and set for us, that we are the reason there is a Universe, does science do us a disservice in deflating our conceits?” “For me, it is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.”
We will be paying tribute to Sagan with a choice selection of videos along with discussion on some of Sagan’s numerous quotes. And in the spirit of Dr.Sagan himself- he stated that “all assumptions must be critically examined”- we’ll be putting some of his quotes up for critical examination. This meeting will be held on Wed., Nov. 13, 7 p.m., at the Mayfield Branch Library (500 SOM Center Rd., Mayfield Village).
