Science- The Great Pursuit of Meaning

Science is the ultimate pursuit of knowledge. It longs to answer questions we, as humans, have about everything: our origins, our meaning, our minds, our environment, and anything else we may wonder. It is an interesting concept; while science is reliable and based on fact, it is also ever-changing. Every new discovery leads to new questions. We may never truly know the answers to the questions we seek for this reason. As technology advances, so does science, and vice versa. Whether you are a believer in science or faith, or some combination of both, it cannot be argued that science is an important path to learning about our world and ourselves.

“To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science.”
-Albert Einstein

“Science is a way of life. Science is a perspective. Science is the process that takes us from confusion to understanding in a manner that’s precise, predictive and reliable – a transformation, for those lucky enough to experience it, that is empowering and emotional.”
-Brian Greene

“We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and technology, in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology.”

“Science is not only a disciple of reason but, also, one of romance and passion.”

“Equipped with his five senses, man explores the universe around him and calls the adventure Science.”

“The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.”
-Isaac Asimov

“If the facts don’t fit the theory, change the facts.”
-Albert Einstein

“Science has made us gods even before we are worthy of being men.”
-Jean Rostand
