An idea worth spreading

Look at your surroundings and take in the beauty of our planet regularly. In the words of the late Carl Sagan; "We are all made of star stuff". It's concepts like these that let us look into the Universe with great curiosity and even more importantly, for us to know that the Universe is actually in us.

I'm passionate about

Absorbing knowledge.

Talk to me about

Your beliefs and goals in life. What makes you smile and how you hope to achieve that.

People don't know I'm good at

Deep sea fishing with a harpoon.

What would a society where Science (as a concept) was promoted with as much intensity as most advertisements look like?
Ahh well maybe I misunderstood... I understand that there is a difference, but I don't think it's a bad idea to be seeing/hearing/reading information even if you can't understand it at first. I guess that is the point where a lot of people seem to give up. However, if you are going through Scientific news, information, documentaries, debates and theories, you will at some point start to grasp the concepts discussed. From then on it's just building blocks of knowledge, even if you don't fully understand something, you can still learn from it.

Ahh yes, I have seen a few episodes of "Through the Wormhole." I stumbled across it on youtube, so when there is a will to see something there is a way. The Ascent of Man AND Cosmos are both fully on youtube so it is a more than respectful method of acquiring knowledge! I am a militant atheist (as Richard Dawkins put it) and the racist behaviour from violent theists is really quite frustrating when they are trying to bring education to the masses. Which side would you rather follow? The one that encourages learning and questioning or the one that encourages mass ignorance. It is sad to see this being the case. No need to blush, USA isn't the only place where ignorance exists.

With digital media archiving it is easy to find scientific material which is not only accessible but highly education. This can be done on youtube, forums or even official Scientific websites such as NASA. There is no doubting the accessibility of Scientific information. I agree with Feyisayo and how he talks about the amount of effort you need to put in, in order to be a recognised Scientist. I am however, hoping that the majority of humans are to be Scientifically literate. There is a big difference between having Scientific literacy and conquering the frontier of Science itself. We all live in this World, it would be marvellous if we all knew why it works the way it does.

Are you satisfied with your life? Do you think its fair?
As I have come to the point where I can call myself Scientifically literate, I have begun to think that I am satisfied with not only my life and this World but also with the Universe. There are so many beautiful chunks of fact people can explore through. Such as Sagan's; "If you wish to make a pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe." and the very fact that we are made of "Star stuffs" It is little heart warming thoughts in life such as those uttered by great minds and those you have stumbled upon yourself that make you treasure this experience. My only issues are with the publicity of Science and how it is portrayed in the media. I just can't swallow the possibility that the general masses find Science to be a boring and grey subject. Knowledge is the solution, we just have to find the way to bring Science in a fresh package and create a new and more positive outlook on it.
