I disliked science, biology, chemistry and physics during middle, high and college. My son loved it. He even received the highest average in his section in middle school. Kudos for him. He wanted to be a chemical or electrical engineer. However, he ended up a Storekeeper Commander @the PentagonUSN. Science is a necessity, it is good to know the how and why of things and situations. We must admit that good things have come from scientific discoveries.

I never got as far as science myself, I quit in grade 8. Got my diploma at age 55 at night. Great post love.

Great post, Krisles

You ask  "Why do people really think that they can ever actually know anything?"  Great question,  that touches on many things.  Scientists should ask themselves that question every day.  But scientific certainty can be achieved,  in a limited way,  which has given us electricity,  cars,  air conditioning and nuclear bombs.  Scientists tend to become over-confident in their certainty,  which is why I was laughing so hard in 2002. 

In that year,  astronomers announced their findings that only five percent of the universe is what we would consider  "ordinary"  matter and energy.  Of the rest of the universe,  they estimated that 35% is  "dark"  matter,  and a mind-boggling 60% is  "dark"  energy.  I don't know why they chose to call it  "dark",  I would say that it is we who are in the dark,  and 95% of the universe is illuminated with a light that we simply cannot see.  

In that 95%,  there is plenty of room for souls,  God,  angels,  demons,  aliens,  auras,  miracles,  etc.

So the scientists' condemnation of anything metaphysical is laughable,  by their own admission,  and for us religious believers,  this is a delicious irony indeed.

A most interest read. I think, as with any topic, there are considerations for the good, the bad, and the ugly! :)

I liked and did well in biology and field ecosystems (got to go outside and

on nature trips) and I do enjoy space news/information.  I'm not really a science person though; don't have a strong enough math brain, lol. This is a thought provoking post; well written, Krisles. I'm not sure how I feel about the opinions of folks like Stephen Hawking because in my view their non belief in a Creator is an opinion albeit one that is more fact based or intellectual than others (not all) who profess a belief. But fact based doesn't mean factual in totality and thus proven..

Well K. I can't help agreeing with you. That's nice isn't it. I was only thinking today as i looked at my garden why am I not giddy spinning around on this planet what a miracle it is that things just don't lift off or the earth groan as buildings are erected. Millions of things that we never think of. Do we think we as a living organism are here for ever. Sadly wars motivate humans to invent. I suppose most could be wiped in a couple of million years. Keep warm.

Well - an interesting post, as always! It's also inspiring - in this case it may well inspire me to defend poor, misunderstood science...

That is how I was in school. I liked biology but was not really interested in chemistry. I found the Periodic Table to be very complex.

I feel that we need a sort of scientific reformation. It seems like a lot of people tend to forget that as our understanding grows, what we know changes and that there are no absolutes.

A great post girl friend.

I failed Science my first year at high school but did scrape through eventually.

As for the Universe, if I think about it too much then I start to shrivel.

I am an ant. I am less than an ant. My time here is less than a nano-second... I am nothing. Less than an atom...well you get the gist. LOl

It is just too much for me to grasp so that my ego becomes crushed and do I really need to know anyway? What is wrong with standing within the warmth of my Love's arms and just enjoy a stary stary night.
