Cleveland Meeting at Maple Heights LibraryDate:
Wednesday, November 13
“We can judge our progress by the courage of our questions and the depth of our answers, our willingness to embrace what is true rather than what feels good.”
“Those afraid of the universe as it really is, those who pretend to nonexistent knowledge and envision a Cosmos centered on human beings will prefer the fleeting comforts of superstition. They avoid rather than confront the world. But those with the courage to explore the weave and structure of the Cosmos, even where it differs profoundly from their wishes and prejudices, will penetrate its deepest mysteries.”
So logical and eloquent – who might have said these things? Join us for our November meeting, which will be a celebration of the life and works of the most poetic communicator of science, skepticism and humanism that the modern world has known – the great Carl Sagan! A variety of Sagan-related videos will be shown (with space for discussion between), and we’ll be examining some of his well-known (and lesser-known) quotes.
The November meeting will be held on Wednesday, November 13 at 7pm at Maple Heights Library (5225 Library Lane).
