^^  How have they been so far?  I always loved Dr. Sagan's writings; he had such a poetic and powerful way of describing what can be complex theories and ideas.

On a side note, this cracked me up:

As a result of a thousand million years of evolution, the universe is becoming conscious of itself, able to understand something of its past history and its possible future.

There has been a chapter here or there that didn't really grab me, but I've really enjoyed the books overall (probably 90% of the material). I don't think I'll be able to give an answer that will satisfy ialmisry, but so far it's been interesting nonetheless.

I'll bet I look like a goof.

Young Girl: Dad, do you think God exists?
Father: I don't know, Sparks. But I guess I'd say if it is just us... seems like an awful waste of space.

If you will, you can become all flame.
