Sometimes it's easy to look at the world and feel hopeless. We can't seem to escape the evils of war, disease, pollution and Seth Rogen. But I don't think we need to give up on ourselves just yet. I think the human race is remarkable because we invented Science and that gives me hope.
The word Science comes from the Latin Scientia which means "knowledge" and it is through knowledge that we will survive. I sincerely believe that the more we learn about the world the better we can make it for ourselves and each other. That's why Science matters and that's why Science will save our species.
