I've seen many stamps praising the supernatural but not many praising science. You know, the same science that delivers us clean water, food, computers, electricity, internet, heat, clothing, etc.
I owe my life many times to science for what it has done for me. I'm sure it has done for you also. I find it hypocritical when someone say "Science is evil," or "Science is boring and when I'm going to ever use it," or my favorite "Science doesn't prove anything."
Anyways, if there are other stamps that praises science, consider this another sucky stamp praising science that the product of science which I'm still learning how to use. xP
Oh, and if you haven't noticed yet, this is another parody of a stamp.
no no no, I love science. I like learning science but only from a creationist view. Science doesn't prove anything. Remember the heliocentric theory? Ha! People accepted it because Nicolaus Copernicus made the theory. Wow, where would we be today?
I like learning science but only from a creationist view.
What you are learning is not Science then. Science is a way to find about the natural world through the scientific method. The scientific method in itself is very unbias. What you're really learning is a very bias view that has been long rejected, and today, is unable to hold water.
Science doesn't prove anything.
I'm quite shocked that you would say that, considering the fact that we are all children of scientific invention. Science gathers data and testing that is generalized through scientific theories and natural laws of our universe.
Take for example Newton's Second Law, the harder you push, the faster it goes in simple terms. Turns out that is true because we gather data and test that prediction into a scientific law.
Of course, if that's not good enough proof, how about this. The fact that you and I, along with everyone else is alive and that our lives, at least in the first world, are living much better lives than the people centuries ago in the first class. Science, coupled with Engineering and the wealth of our economy, managed to prove itself time and time again. Just look how much better our lives is compared to even the world today where laws are enacted just to say "Science doesn't prove anything."
Bridges, roads, cars, cell phone, even the places of worship are really based off scientific principles that is later applied to engineering. I mean, science is the reason why the roof of everything you're mostly under that doesn't collapse while you're able to be so comfortable.
Remember the heliocentric theory? Ha! People accepted it because Nicolaus Copernicus made the theory. Wow, where would we be today?
The heliocentric theory was held because of the authority of the time, which in this case, the church. Despite the fact that it has been disproven by Gaileo, he has been punished by the authority of the church. If anything, it only proves how humanity can kill itself.
But lets ignore the above and assume what you're saying is true. Even then, it doesn't work. The only reason why the heliocentric theory survived because of observation of the time. It seems that we were the center of everything because it seems that way. However, just because things seems that way doesn't mean it is that way. That is where Galieo says and as a result, he got punished.
What makes Science so great is the ability to correct itself, if there is strong proof to do so. Going back to my example of Newton, we only realized that those laws work on a limit scale. Einstein took over and changed those laws to where it can be applied everywhere.
With your example, the reason why the Heliocentric view took over because of politics. I won't go over the repression of such knowledge back in ancient times, but I will say that the law of natural world works and science finds them no matter how powerful a person is or how many people believe otherwise.
That being said, science cannot say anything about the supernatural. Science is a way to find out how the natural universe works, nothing else.
The reason why Scientists and others get mad and make a big fuss about religious extremist is because they misuse and abuse science for their beliefs. They then use their "justified beliefs" to change the education, law, and control people for their own gain.
I could go on about this all day, but this is just too much for a read for one comment, so I will stop and post a tl;dr.
tl;dr: Science works and we are all happier than we have been many centuries ago
*Please excuse the mistakes I might have made. I do not mind being corrected. Just tell me what I should correct and I will do my best to fix it.
Thank you, Carl Sagan. It wasn't any holy or philosophical dogma that saved me. It was you. You saved me from my own personal ignorance, and opened my mind to the beauty and wonders of reality, of life, and of the cosmos. I have found love and knowledge in a place I had previously thought to be cold and far too complicated: Science. More specifically, astronomy.
Keep looking up, and remember- we are all star stuff.
If it wasn´t for science, I not live. I had a heart surgery at the age of two years old, and 13, and other catheterization. If it was for religion, I not standing here, because they said Science is evil. Probably, if science didn´t advance, I could have died for sure.
