Remember when the universe was geocentric because the church would not have it any other way? And by the way, just what disproved the Flat earth, science or religion?

Yes, sergio, I have seen the movie a couple times myself (as always, the book is much better). It amazes me that you can call Carl Sagan a great man when he was just as critical if not more than I about faith and religion. The movie touches apon faith in science, and the point is a true scientist (Elli Arrowway) CANNOT make theories without evidence, even when they've seen it with their own eyes. Faith then relies on the hypothesis (other intelligent life) and the search for hard evidence must continue. This was at the very core of what Carl Sagan was trying to say.
