Although, being 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 this, “Word” (e.g., Conspiracy Theorists), but in reality, clearly, they can provide no evidence that they actually do.
The Word? Oh, yes –
STOP. 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, then, it’s natural.
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, which hosts it.
Many times, I’ll upload a post – whether, or not, it’s actually ready for posting! This is a habit I developed when the WordPress text editor was a CRAZY thing, way back when. So, I find myself coming back to the articles and touching them up, adding images, etc. Please bear with me on that as I work on trying to adopt a new policy.
