I mean: we are both human
but they make the world better by their ideas,while we make the same world worse by our stupidness
What you think the reasons for that??
why thy think in deferent way.so they can discover and invite new things
on the other hand
we just revive Evey thing from them and use it badly ,so we effect ourselves and the environment as well.

  • Apr 2 2012: I think you're looking at this the wrong way. It's not scietists that have a certain way of thinking. It's peope who think a certain way that become scientists.

    Scientists do work based on basic human needs and curiosity, and if it wasn't for a interest in certain subjects scientists wouldn't be able to perform the level they do today.

    So by categorizing scientists as "them" and non-scientists as "us" isn't entirely correct. They provide a service for the general population, tirelessly researching items and topics we wouldn't otherwise be capable of and publish his/her findings for all of us to read and educate ourselves on. They need "us" as much as we need "them" and we are all part of each other for better or worse.
