Dear Amazonian (young in heart),

Carl Sagan was speaking to you. He wanted you to understand the evidence-based methods of science. Your thread title (referring to slang that does not fit your link) is out of tune with the art of critical thought.

Get serious about the bright future before us and re-join the world of positive reform to end poverty and other intolerable conditions to which we are heirs.

It is a modern world none of made and few of us would accept if we had a choice. Choose reason and the Golden Rule. Turn money into a convenience not a curse.

f4a: It is neither. It is a tool used to facilitate transactions. It should be (and the laws of economics say it will be) determined and used by the market.

The market in the end will prevail.
