Discussion of Carl Sagan's "The Demon Haunted World"

On August 4, the first meeting of the book club occurred.  Ryan presented a list of possible books, and Jacqueline chose the glorious manifesto of modern skepticism: Demon-haunted world. 

For many people, the world is a scary, magical, haunted place.  It may be dangerous, but the world can be explained without resorting to magic and demons as the best explanation for the challenges we experience.  Let the light of reason chase away the superstitions by communing with Carl by reading this book.  We can discuss several aspects of it at our next meeting.
