^^  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:

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.

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.

I think Sagan would be proud:

Quote
July 14, 2014 — Because of his unique perspective as both a scientist and a man of faith, Jesuit Brother Guy Consolmagno has been awarded the Carl Sagan Medal from the American Astronomical Society (AAS).
....
“As a Jesuit Brother, Guy has become the voice of the juxtaposition of planetary science and astronomy with Christian belief, a rational spokesperson who can convey exceptionally well how religion and science can co-exist for believers,” the AAS wrote.

His book God's Mechanics: How Scientists and Engineers Make Sense of Religion looks like an interesting read (and only $10.49 on Kindle), I'll have to put that on the list...

What have I stumbled on? Justin and Jetavan's version of "Quotes from the Fathers"?

Well, maybe when I'm done on this thread I'll head over and post some patristic quotes in those Church Fathers threads. I've never been in them, but I've been wanting to post something!  Tongue

I think I will just start referring to you two as J2.

It is a little know but irrefutable fact that the initials of both Justin Kissel and my other name, Justin Credible, are properly to be written as: J. With that in mind, I believe using J2 to refer to myself and Jetavan would be both inaccurate and confusing. Cool
