It's easy to look at the world and feel hopeless. We can't seem to escape the evils of war, disease, depression, pollution and pan-flute music. But I don't think we need to give up. 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 people learn about the world...the better the world becomes. That's why Science matters and that's why Science will save our species.
