Maybe Science Needs More Fiction.

Most fans of science will tell you that Carl Sagan was one of the most remarkable scientists of the 20th century. His greatness lied not in his discoveries or breakthroughs but is his creativity and his ability to communicate science to others. He wrote several books, among them a science fiction novel. Carl Sagan's novel, Contact, is by no means a masterpiece. However, it is a perfectly enjoyable piece of fiction. I have read it numerous times.

Hi James

A big welcome to this world of rationality, truth and peace, where common sense and science lead to freethinking wisdom --- as you know in being a  non believer and freethinker like us.

We invite you to make good friends by joining the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Astronomy, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Gods, Atheism, Evolution, Darwin..." with 700 discussion topics and 3500 members.

Welcome, James! Glad you could join us. :D

Please consider joining a group to meet people and talk about anything that's on your mind, Hang With Friends. I also recommend Eco-Logical, since as a young adult the drastic climate change will impact most of your life. You might like Nexus Book Club and Godless Gamers. You might also want to consider Loners and Introverts, since you stay indoors a lot, and Atheist Singles.


After you've searched for topics of interest in "Groups" above and in the "Forums", don't forget to look at recent activity which hides along the right margin of the page all the way at the bottom.
