I Believe In Evidence

“Don’t you believe in anything?” Isaac Asimov said, “I believe in evidence. I believe in observation, measurement, and reasoning, confirmed by independent observers”.

“Organized” religion, “des-organized” religion: sects and cults, have been created by humans throughout millennia. As humans evolved from small hunter-gatherer tribes into large agrarian cultures, our ancestors needed to encourage cooperation and tolerance among relative strangers. Religion then—along with the belief in a moralizing God—was a cultural adaptation to these challenges.

Learning Wednesday: Science Knowledge And Wisdom

Learning science, practicing it, understanding it, loving it! I also cherish many scientists who have given us the pleasure of expanding our way of living and our mental horizons and who have worked tirelessly to better humanity. So here there are some quotes from one of the so many scientists that I deeply admire.

“The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.” — Isaac Asimov

I am not a speed reader. I am a speed understander.” — Isaac Asimov ”

“There is a single light of science, and to brighten it anywhere is to brighten it everywhere.” — Isaac Asimov

“Suppose that we are wise enough to learn and know – and yet not wise enough to control our learning and knowledge so that we use it to destroy ourselves? Even if that is so, knowledge remains better than ignorance .” — Isaac Asimov
