    Someone on Vimeo put together a presentation with audio from Carl Sagan's "Pale Blue Dot". It's one of many great pieces of writing and thought from the late Sagan. In it, Carl describes the "humbling sermon" delivered by human progress (scientific) against the egocentric views of spiritual / religious ideology.​

    It's quite long and there's some music in the beginning, but it's worth a listen.​
