I've come across this quotation twice today and so I think maybe it's a good idea to post it:
Of course, "such a religion" has already emerged but it is often well hidden. I refer, of course, to the mystical and contemplatative aspects of the religions we already have. Sadly, these aspects are often ignored or even disparaged by authoritarian, legalistic types of practitioners.
A religion that stressed the magnificence of the universe as revealed by modern science, might be able to draw forth reserves of reverence and awe hardly tapped by traditional faiths. Sooner or later, such a religion will emerge.
-- Carl Sagan
Ah, Carl Sagan, you are very missed, indeed!
