"Argument from Authority. See Carl Sagan on this logical fallacy (The Demon-Haunted World)."

...on logic (is argument from authority a fallacy?)
But argument from authority is not a logical fallacy.
When it comes to human authority, it is the weakest of arguments, yet valid as a probable argument.
When it comes to divine authority, it is the strongest of arguments.
Who calls the atheist and evolutionist Carl Sagan a master of logic? [Someone believing his authority?]
