As you know, Carl Sagan died last month. He was vehemently anti-Christian and an ardent evolutionist who fought the creation movement.

He and his wife wrote an article for “Parade” magazine a couple of years ago using something very similar to embryonic recapitulation to justify abortion.

Anyhow, he was interviewed on Ted Koppel’s TV program “Dateline” (the same program where Geoffrey Dahmer was interviewed) just a few days before he died.

Ted Koppel asked him if he had any closing remarks or words of wisdom he would like to share with the Earth’s people.

So I thought you might like to read Carl Sagan’s last major statement to the world:

“We live on a hunk of rock and metal that circles a humdrum star that is one of 400 billion other stars that make up the Milky Way Galaxy which is one of billions of other galaxies which make up a universe which may be one of a very large number, perhaps an infinite number, of other universes.

That is a perspective on human life and our culture that is well worth pondering.”

In other words—we’re nothing—we’re nothing special—we’re just part of this universe!

What a sad legacy to leave the world.
