Well I found this:

Carl Sagan: "My view is that if there is no evidence for it, then forget about it. An agnostic is somebody who doesn't believe in something until there is evidence for it, so I'm agnostic." [Source: http://www.gr8st8.com/main_pages/atheists.htm]

and this:

some people have said he is a pantheist, because he said thing like "The idea that God is an oversized white male with a flowing beard who sits in the sky and tallies the fall of every sparrow is ludicrous. But if by 'God' one means the set of physical laws that govern the universe, then clearly there is such a God. This God is emotionally unsatisfying... it does not make much sense to pray to the law of gravity."   source:  wikipedia, so who knows

This of course only says he doesn't believe in an afterlife, but this is just one of billions and billions of quotes that all seem to point seem to point in the same direction.

And you can only believe in God if you believe in an afterlife - and vice versa?

Back on subject, my favorite episode was the one that explained Tesserects and dimensional stuff. As a history major, the one that explained about Heron and Hypatia of Alexandria was also a gem.
