    Zemeckis recalls, "I had a great relationship with Carl through the whole project."

    Zemeckis worked with Sagan on striking the balance between human interest and science.

    However, although Sagan did pass away prior to the film's release in 1997 (November 9, 1934 – December 20, 1996, accoring to the Wik), therefore within months o ...[text shortened]... e always reaching erroneous conclusions based on half-baked information, don't you think?
    considering these ideas taking from Sagan's writing:
    Wherever possible there must be independent confirmation of the facts
    Encourage substantive debate on the evidence by knowledgeable proponents of all points of view.
    Arguments from authority carry little weight (in science there are no "authorities"😉.
    Spin more than one hypothesis - don't simply run with the first idea that caught your fancy.
    Try not to get overly attached to a hypothesis just because it's yours.
    Quantify, wherever possible.
    If there is a chain of argument every link in the chain must work.
    "Occam's razor" - if there are two hypothesis that explain the data equally well choose the simpler.
    Ask whether the hypothesis can, at least in principle, be falsified (shown to be false by some unambiguous test). In other words, it is testable? Can others duplicate the experiment and get the same result?
    your attack on the good Doctor is really laughable.
    Maybe you think Roy Hobbs hit that world series winning homerun too.

    Attack? What gave you the impression that an attack was underway? Probably the same bias that twisted the intent of that other thread regarding the infallibility of science, is my guess.

    So you are conceding that you got the facts wrong relative to "the good Doctor's" death?

    I never concede anything, silly boy , just remember Sagan was dead when the movie was finished, not 3 years but 7 months. the seven months it takes to reshoot scenes and do some editing.
    Not that Im saying that was done, but ya never know, do you silly boy.
    If you don't think you were attacking him, then you really are a turd
    that writes garbage without realizing what he's writing.

    Howie, howie, howie. Have you wet your pants so quickly again? Merriam-Webster sez:

    "aright
    One entry found for aright.


    Main Entry: aright
    Pronunciation: &-'rIt
    Function: adverb
    Etymology: Middle English, from Old English ariht, from 1a- + riht right
    : RIGHT, CORRECTLY [if I remember aright]"

    Anything else you need help on, howie, just gurggle.
