exposing truth

“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.”
― Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark

I love your photo and the quote from Carl Sagan is perfect, so full of truth.
I was such a Carl Sagan fan.

Wishing you joy today.

Thank you for complimenting my photo.

I, too, am a Carl Sagan fan. So many people I would love to have known. :) Maybe in my next lives, I'll be able to connect with at least a few of them. :)

Blessings to you this day!
