"Are we on the brink of a new Dark Age of irrationality and superstition? In this stirring, brilliantly argued book, internationally respected scientist Carl Sagan shows how scientific thinking is necessary to safeguard our democratic institutions and our technical civilization." "The Demon-Haunted World is more personal and richer in moving and revealing human stories than anything Sagan has previously written. With illustrations from his own childhood experience as well as engrossing tales of discovery, Sagan shows how the method of scientific thought can cut through prejudice and hysteria to uncover the often surprising truth." "He convincingly debunks "alien abduction," "channelers," faith-healer fraud, the "face" on Mars, and much else. Along the way, he refutes the arguments that science destroys spirituality or is just another arbitrary belief system, asks why scientific study is often stigmatized, discusses the dangers of the misuse of science, and provides a "baloney detection kit" for thinking through political, social, religious, and other issues."--Jacket.… (més)

It took me a long time to get around to reading this book, but now I wish I had done it sooner. Discusses critical thinking and skepticism in an understandable style.Some of the examples seem forced, but all are instructive. In 2021 it is still a very relevant read. ( )

One of the premier books on skepticism. As relevant to day as it was when Carl Sagan wrote it. ( )

Leer una y otra vez. ( )

Critical thinking is so important in today's world, and this book is all about critical thinking. From how ignoring it lead to mass murder of so many in witch trials, to today where it seems that more people believe the validity horoscopes then not. Being able to distinguish fact from "alternative fact" or drivel. ( )

Too much talk about religion, not enough talk about science. ( )
