Carl Sagan vs. Skepticism

A great quote by Carl Sagan:

“Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.”

Works for God, UFOs, ghosts, etc. Seems ironic because skeptics are fans of him, yet by taking this quote to heart, skeptics would have to give up their posture that they think they know.

Blasphemy vs Heresy

Terry Jones:

“Blasphemy is the undermining of a spiritual belief system.
Heresy is the undermining of the bureaucracy that has grown around a spiritual belief system.”
