It is sad to see that many people doubt science. But paraphrasing Richard Dawkins, remember that planes fly, cars drive, computers compute. “It works…b*tch3s!” – Richard Dawkins
For almost 12,000 years, we have builded our economy based only on Earths resources. But with space exploration, we will become a multiplanetary species and trade will be between our terraformed worlds.
It is not what you think or believe, it is what you can prove with evidence and verifiable data. Paraphrasing Professor Brian Cox, human stupidity is now the biggest threat for our survival.
If we have learned something, it´s that life always finds a way and prevails. And in these troubled times, we as primates with big brains, have the job to cooperate and demonstrate that we are valuable to Earth and all life in it.
This is a moment to reflect on ourselves and remember that this is the only planet that we have. We have done great harm to Earth, but it is not too late to change and take care of our home. And as Carl Sagan said: “we humans are capable of greatness”.
There is a better ecosystem equilibrium in the court of science than in the court of man´s law. “Nature is the ultimate judge, jury, and executioner. You can argue all you want but if nature doesn´t agree with you, you´re wrong”. Neil deGrasse Tyson.
According to Agent Smith, in the Matrix, humans behave like a virus to planet Earth. With the recent pandemic of COVID 19, and humans inside their houses, pollution levels have reduce dramatically, and wildlife is flourishing, so maybe he is right!
In this pandemic, science is going to save us…again. Not politicians…but it´s their job to educate people on how to behave accordingly.
With about 100 billion stars in the Milky Way; there are at least 25 billion possible places for life, and our galaxy is one among billions. Jaime Shreeve. But our first contact could be with a non biological being, but a cyborg.
We are more worried to improve our body than our brain. With its 100 billion neurons and 100 trillion connections, exercising the brain is also sexy!
