Scientific Pursuits
I'm pretty new, and I was just curious how many people here are pursuing a career or are already in a career that is heavily science or mathematically oriented?

I am studying engineering at Colorado School of Mines, and I love science and math. I think it opens a door to understand what is the cause of all the beautiful things and anomalies that happen here in this universe.

Welcome to the forum.

I have been heavy into philosophy for many years and unfortunately weak in maths/science.
I did study logic which helps a bit............. Cool

Mr. Woof, you are doing it right. The maths are brain melting. Philosophy, on the other hand, is like a nice brain massage.

RE: Scientific Pursuits
I have a bachelor's degree in Mathematics and a master's in Computer Science.

My undergrad minor was Philosophy.

I work in the high-tech industry - software and systems.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

RE: Scientific Pursuits
I am inept when it comes to mathematics. The blame largely falls onto myself, but I do recognize that my schooling never emphasized or taught the hard sciences well. I had Catholic schooling, and had more religion classes than classes that taught to enjoy and make it easier to learn and apply mathematics.

Heard of a guy, when doing my undergrad degree, who was a logician; he suffered regular (alleged) minor brain haemhorages, so I get your point Big Grin

If there is motivation it is never too late, really. Maths just slowly blow up your brains.

I love science and math, for the things that blow your mind every now and then. Understanding a phenomena makes me better appreciate it Smile

Neil deGrasse Tyson is awesome...I want to see him in person one day, just to say I have met one of the most profound human beings who has ever lived.
