Questioning Truth, Reality and the Role of Science | Quanta Magazine
For people who visit this blog more often, it is no secret that I love science. I feel it’s amazing that we humans, in only a few thousand years, have found out so much about our world, the cosmos and our place in it. We owe that understanding to people with inquisitive minds, prepared to follow the evidence where it leads and who dare to question everything. Today, we call these people scientists. In the past, we might have called them heretics.
