Modern life presents us with an interesting apparent paradox: science has a strong cultural authority, yet primitive darkness is creeping in just beyond the flickering flame of reason, threatening at any moment to extinguish that which we all have worked so hard for to attain.
It is time to work towards ending it. This blog will join the global community of supporters of science and reason and try to push back the forces of darkness.
“I maintain there is much more wonder in science than in pseudoscience. And in addition, to whatever measure this term has any meaning, science has the additional virtue, and it is not an inconsiderable one, of being true.” – Carl Sagan
