He wrote this book in 1985, and was diagnosed with cancer in 1994. I'm not sure the cancer diagnosis provided much subtext from 9 years in the future.

I'm glad you're a Sagan fan, but it kind of sounds like you're implying he had some kind of deathbed conversion. He did not.

From Billions and Billions (co-written with his wife, Ann Druyan):

"Contrary to the fantasies of the fundamentalists," Druyan writes, "there was no deathbed conversion, no last minute refuge taken in a comforting vision of a heaven or an afterlife. For Carl, what mattered most was what was true, not merely what would make us feel better."

This kind of false attribution of a "deathbed conversion" shows up all over social media when prominent atheists die. Hawking, Hitchens, Sagan--none of them sold out at the last second as they saw the light, but Facebook grandma loves forwarding memes saying that they did.

Sorry if that's not what you were implying with your comment, that's just how I interpreted it.
Carl is the GOAT, and I don't know that any of his contemporaries can ever hope to fill his shoes.

One of his countless brilliant quotes is on the front door of my science classroom:

"Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known."
Maybe, I liked both the book and the film. I liked the movie enough to have seen it three times now.

Depends on the platform, since I have this on Audible, and it was read by Laurel Lefkoe.

Agreed, but with few exception, isn't that usually the case?
