It's easy to look at the world and feel hopeless. War, poverty, disease, depression, cruelty and pan-flute music are everywhere. But I don't think we need to give up just yet. I think the human race is remarkable. We invented Science and that gives me hope.
The word Science comes from the Latin Scientia which means "knowledge" and it's through knowledge that we will survive. I sincerely believe that the more people learn about the world...the better the world becomes. That's why Science matters and that's why Science will save our species.
