Although I am a fairly new writer in this field – I am not new to its subject. What’s more, I consider myself a kind of evangelist; a popularizer of, ‘the Word‘. Not a new Word, for most people – that is, most everyone has heard of, or has read about this word, before. Nevertheless, I have found that, in all my years of experience talking with and questioning others – about their World, their place in it – and how it got to be that way. Few, really have any reasonable understanding of what this Word means – very, very few, so it has come to my attention…
Even worse – still, others think that they do have an understanding of the Word (e.g., Conspiracy Theorists), but in reality, clearly, they do not.
Oh, yes –
Look around you — right now. I challenge you – to find something in your world (outside of Nature, and natural objects), that is not a product of one, or more of the Sciences…
Go ahead; I’ll wait….………
I know; you didn’t. It can’t be done.
If you think that you have found something which is not a product of a Science – well, you have your eyes closed. Familiar as we are with our environment and all of its accoutrements – very few of us can describe, say, just, how some object or other, came into existence.
Most people in American society, at least – are not, ‘scientifically-literate’, even though they enjoy, and, even demand the very latest, electronic digital products they require for a life-style that is satisfactory to them.
But, most have no understanding of the real-world, applied science that goes into the manufacturing of those products. They are taken for granted; in their minds, those products – simply, exist – and came from some warehouse, somewhere – “because, that’s the way it is!”
I hope that you’ll find this collection of 230+ (as I am able to upload them), short, sweet – and sometimes – humorous, science essays – to be fun, and instructive “lessons”, as a friend has called them – and, an inspiration for you, to find out all that you can about your world, and the universe that we inhabit.
