    Science Without A Conscience...

    "Science sans conscience est la ruine de l'âme. (Science without a conscience is the soul's demise) That's what my mother used to tell me when I used scientific reasoning and logic to counter all the "you should do this" she tried to teach me when I was young. ...

    So basically, I'm here to talk about science.

    Not the science you would think of but more of me hating on what science is. An explanation, an experiment, everything you revolve around. Science. When someone says that you live in a world of science, not miracles, not wishes, not fairy tales, all I want to do is scream that...

    Everything Has A Dark Side

    I respect and follow scienctific issues as much as I (a nonscientist type) can.  Science has a dark side of course, as does just about everything else.  Darwin and eugenics did not lead to Nazism, the Nazis just used whatever they could find to forward their own...

    I Disagree.

     I don't think science has a "dark side". Science in itself is, as I understand it, simply our knowledge of our world and the quest for more of it. People, on the other hand, have a dark side. The (terrible) ways people decide to apply science does not necessarily mean...

    The European Organization of Nuclear Research

    (CERN) says it's aim is to simply discover and understand how matter in its simplest form, (later resulting in our universe) was created. While it's scientists may truly hold this belief and work ethic, the organization, founded as early as 1954, is reportedly conducting...

    Everything Has A Dark Side

    Of course science has a dark side, as everything does. You can say that I am scientificaly oriented though i believe in life after death (ectoplasm, look it up) (but more on that later. Everything has a dark side, for without darkness there is no light. Imagine if all the...

    Truth

    I don't believe it has a dark side because it creates harmfull and dangerous things, but because it tells us things that are not true. Because it is a human practice and mistakes are being made in human practices. Our view on the world is probably completely wrong, because we...

    Chem-Trails Soon to be invisible....too late...they did it.

    Phase 3 of Chem-Trail technology has advanced. A new and improved formula is being pumped into our air. These trails are beginning to appear more like Con-Trails. This newer formula, dissolves faster and is not visible as long as the trails we have grown accustomed to.(Did I...

    Our SUN Is About To Wipe Us Out.

    If you are over 40 years of age, you will agree with this. When we were younger, do remember how our sun had an orangey yellowish color to it? Remember? Today our sun is WHITE. You can't even look at it. It is super white hot. And it seems to be getting bigger as well. This is...

    Ghostwriters In The Sky

    Ben Goldacre, The Guardian, Saturday 18 September 2010 If I tell you that Katie Price did not, necessarily, write her own book, this is not a revelation. From academics I have slightly higher expectations, but now the legal system has spat out another skip full of documents...

    True

    I love science and have a deep respect for it. I am more apt to follow scientific fact than spiritual belief. I've always had the attitude of, "If it not scientifically proven, I'll have to experience it to believe it." I only believe in what is known as...
