The Poetry of Science

As freethinkers, we value science as a method of truly seeing the world for what it is. While some people might say science is just a boring body of knowledge or even reject science outright for conflicting with their presupposed ideas, we have had the inkling that it is otherwise.

How can science be boring? The methods of science has given us access to realms beyond our own senses, to vast new vistas of the cosmos that humanity can never otherwise have seen. From the bizarre world of the quantum to the vast magnificence of the galaxies, science has taken us there.

Science is so much better than the dogma of presupposed ideas. Science has enriched our sense of humanity by showing us the common roots of our past. Beyond the commonality of humanity, we have found that we are truly only animals. We are not fallen angels, we are so much better. We are the rising apes.

To do my little bit to promote science in the Philippines I’ll be writing more science centric posts on the blog. It might seem like preaching to the choir but I’ve got to start somewhere right?

To begin, here is an inspiring conversation between two great proponents of science, Richard Dawkins (Atheist Pope) and Neil deGrasse Tyson (Sexy Science Man). You might not learn anything new scientifically other than that the Atheist Pope doesn’t watch too many movies but I personally had a braingasm from the inspiring ways Sexy Science Man explained some concepts.
