I was really conflicted about this book. It's well-written, but it is honestly one of the most depressing books I have ever read. The entire thing is just bad things happening to good women, over and over again, and I found the "Evelyn" sections so o ...more

The Demon-Haunted World by Carl Sagan
Think of "alien abduction" as taking the advice of a random leader praising the advantages of hydroxychloroquine to handle a worldwide pandemic.

The Demon-Haunted World by Carl Sagan
a) Yes, it does get a lot better when you get past the chapters that were written in response to the popular "UFO abduction" fad of the time.
b) He is not mocking the readers of anything ... Sagan is trying to urge them to read things critically and n See JethOrensin’s answer.
Angela Mitchell liked an answer about The Demon-Haunted World:
The Demon-Haunted World by Carl Sagan
Back when this book was written, "alien abduction" was a big deal and many otherwise perfectly intelligent people believed it. The concept of alien abduction seems to have been a fad and is less relevant today, but it's easy to look around and see so See Mike’s answer.
Angela Mitchell answered a question about The Demon-Haunted World:
The Demon-Haunted World by Carl Sagan
You definitely didn't read this book.

1. TDHW is nonfiction; CONTACT is fiction. Comparing the two isn't really appropriate and is counterproductive.

2. Sagan didn't mock anyone in TDHW, and in the anecdote you describe, he isn't mocking people for bel See Full Answer

Oscar Wilde
“Yes: I am a dreamer. For a dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.”
Oscar Wilde, The Critic as Artist

J.R.R. Tolkien
“PIPPIN: I didn't think it would end this way.

GANDALF: End? No, the journey doesn't end here. Death is just another path, one that we all must take. The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass, and then you see it.

PIPPIN: What? Gandalf? See what?

GANDALF: White shores, and beyond, a far green country under a swift sunrise.

PIPPIN: Well, that isn't so bad.

GANDALF: No. No, it isn't.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings

J.R.R. Tolkien
“In rode the Lord of the Nazgûl. A great black shape against the fires beyond he loomed up, grown to a vast menace of despair. In rode the Lord of the Nazgûl, under the archway that no enemy ever yet had passed, and all fled before his face.

All save one. There waiting, silent and still in the space before the Gate, sat Gandalf upon Shadowfax: Shadowfax who alone among the free horses of the earth endured the terror, unmoving, steadfast as a graven image in Rath Dínen.
"You cannot enter here," said Gandalf, and the huge shadow halted. "Go back to the abyss prepared for you! Go back! Fall into the nothingness that awaits you and your Master. Go!"
The Black Rider flung back his hood, and behold! he had a kingly crown; and yet upon no head visible was it set. The red fires shone between it and the mantled shoulders vast and dark. From a mouth unseen there came a deadly laughter.
"Old fool!" he said. "Old fool! This is my hour. Do you not know Death when you see it? Die now and curse in vain!" And with that he lifted high his sword and flames ran down the blade.

And in that very moment, away behind in some courtyard of the city, a cock crowed. Shrill and clear he crowed, recking nothing of war nor of wizardry, welcoming only the morning that in the sky far above the shadows of death was coming with the dawn.
And as if in answer there came from far away another note. Horns, horns, horns, in dark Mindolluin's sides they dimly echoed. Great horns of the north wildly blowing. Rohan had come at last.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King

Dorothy L. Sayers
“Yes—but your luck will come more at the end of life than at the beginning, because the other sort of people won’t understand the way your mind works. They will start by thinking you dreamy and romantic, and then they’ll be surprised to discover that you are really hard and heartless, they’ll be quite wrong both times—but they won’t ever know it, and you won’t know it at first, and it’ll worry you.”
Dorothy L. Sayers, The Nine Tailors

J.R.R. Tolkien
“Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
