Science and religion Quotes

A religion old or new, 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 the conventional faiths. Sooner or later, such a religion will emerge.

I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion.

Carl Sagan
