I NEVER got this emotional when hearing the biblical story of creation nor the biblical explanations of life, but the beauty of science leaves me in tears.

What exactly is it about science that moves you to such tears?

And what particular areas of science have such an effect on you? Cosmology?

I'm only asking out of curiosity, because while there are many things that I find moving in such a way, I don't particularly associate that sense to any particular scientific discovery or contemplation.

Any of you blue-eyed devils out there? This is for you.

Blue-eyed humans have a single, common ancestor

"New research shows that people with blue eyes have a single, common ancestor. Scientists have tracked down a genetic mutation which took place 6,000-10,000 years ago and is the cause of the eye color of all blue-eyed humans alive on the planet today.”

This video fills me with humility and, in a way, brings me to peace. It's not stunningly amazing, it's not glorious. It is a simple speech filled with truth and inspiration.

RE: The elegant nature of science
First you tell me Pluto isn't a planet, and now Brontosaurus is a real thing again. Everything I know is a lie Weeping

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?
