Science Deniers Beware
Neil deGrasse Tyson is here.
I wish I knew what was/is wrong with those who refuse to accept the findings of science. It appears they hate objective reality and cannot stand what their own senses (brains) tell them; instead relying on ancient books written by ancient writers’ who interpreted how we homo-sapiens came into being, (who didn't know at the time that we were dubbed homo-sapiens, -- Humans received the species name, Homo sapiens, meaning "wise man," in 1758. But, given our short-sighted behavior, that name needs to be changed, one writer proposes.) with the use of elaborate human imagination (which had evolved over the eons with natural selection). Good grief, I don’t possess even an ounce worth of the sophisticated knowledge that science has proven with labored scientific study, yet there is no way I could look to an old worn-out, filled with fantasy, doctrine for the answers our potent intelligence, hungers for. The power of fear can be the only reason for the acceptance of hogwash as truth, now if only those science deniers could learn that “there’s nothing to fear but fear itself” life could become a fascinating journey for them as well. thinkingblue

free-thinking, the other intolerant and close-minded!
