Carl Sagan was either an idiot or a liar, take your pick. Probably both.

And what exactly do you base this extraordinary statement on?

LP is just pissed because Carl Sagan also asked him why he didn't steal something from the aliens while he was abducted. Or told him that a five year old would be exposed to aliens on TV if he had a TV in his room...

To say he was an idiot is an opinion you're entitled to. Just as it's my right to disagree with you on it.
But saying he's a liar is libel unless you can back it up with evidence.
Carl Sagan is held in high regard, but if you can prove to us that he is not worth it, I am open to change my mind about him.

Just keep in mind, if you start flinging poo at one of Skepticism's greatest icons, without sufficient backup, you're setting yourself up for a hard fall.
