The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark - Carl Sagan Carl Sagan had an amazing gift for delivering stirring speeches and essays in support of science. In Demon Haunted World he turns his eloquence against the promoters of New Age mysticism and religious fundamentalism who try to downgrade science to just another competing belief system when in fact science is the only system that relies entirely on verifiable evidence and repeatable tests to support its ideas and theories. Many authors have made these arguments before, including Martin Gardner, James Randi, and Michael Shermer, but Sagan's fame has made his book the highest profile work in the small field of science defenders. Sagan's book is not my favorite in the genre, but I hope it continues to be widely read and its message heard by future generations.
