Any faith that admires truth, that strives to know God, must be brave enough to accommodate the universe.

    Thanks! I think since your thumbs up, I clarified this quote is from the character Palmer Joss in Carl Sagan’s novel, Contact.

    The careful (and long-time) reader will recognize I’ve mentioned this quote here a couple of times before.

    Great quote! Seems contrary to many people’s views of Carl Sagan.

    Kevin, I don’t know if you’ve read the book Contact, but if you haven’t, I recommend it. In Contact, Palmer Joss is a religious leader. Carl Sagan was agnostic. So these are the words that Carl Cagan put in the mouth of someone he would have disagreed with. Hence my clarification that these are the words of a character in the book.
