Keeping up with science!
Remember when science was a great thing in peoples’ eyes? Science cured syphilis! Science gave us the smallpox vaccine! Science gave us the polio vaccine! Science brought livelihood back to the south [23:00 into podcast]!
Science is more fascinating and pioneering today than it ever has been. We’ve mapped our entire genome (after discovering DNA itself), cloned animals, performed surgery with robots, found ways to calculate the age of the universe, and that’s not even getting into the mind-bogglingly fast growth of the computer sciences and, well, the internet itself.
We could certainly do with a few more pro-science posters around, these days. It’s your friend, not your enemy!
