Remember Carl Sagan's book "The Dragons of Eden"? If I recall he was one of the first people - I won't say scientist - to propose a brain hardwired for religion.

At one time I was quite enthralled with CS, and paid good money to attend one of his lectures at Carnegie Hall in Pittsburgh. I even dressed in beige slacks and a brown cordoroy jacket with leather elbow patches.

Boy, was THAT 35 bucks down the terlit, Not to mention the cost of the clothes! Although when I walked around smoking my pipe I have to admit the outfit WAS quite a babe magnet. Of course that's before it was "out" to smoke a pipe.

Oh and I had LOTS more hair.

My brother-in-law used to get furious with Sagan, saying that he delt with science opinion, not science fact.

Youth...it's wasted on the young. One thing can be said for aging though...it beats the alternative. :^)

But I'll bet the "babes" did too.
