My absolute most favorite. (1.5 minutes).... Tongue

That is incredible! I didn't know that about supercolliders!

Now, I want a milkshake. Smile

I think in the end, I just feel like I'm a secular person who has a skeptical eye toward any extraordinary claim, carefully examining any extraordinary evidence before jumping to conclusions. ~ Eric ~ My friend ... who figured it out.

RE: The elegant nature of science
I think things like quantum entanglement, the double slit experiment and the flat world analogy are great examples of just how elegant and mysterious science can be. I came across a video that explains these ideas pretty well. Fortunately it's a cartoon that a feeble brain like mine can understand. I need to add that I rented the movie (What the bleep do we know?) where this Dr.Quantum comes from and on the whole it gets too close to "new age" mumbo jumbo bs IMHO...Dodgy

I guess it all depends on just how far down the rabbit hole you want to go. Carrots anyone?

[Brian Cox video]
Admittedly, I was tired one night and was just kind of listening to him explain something, putting it together in my head; I had a mind-gasm. All my electrons just sort of exploded into everything.... the everything that is nothing. You know... the nothing that people talk about when they ask how the universe could come from nothing. Shy

If you can't see, here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4f9wcSLs8ZQ

A video talking about the stir that Brian Cox created. I think that means he did well.




This article just blew my mind for some reason. I'm not really versed in biology, but always thought of the beginning as RNA.. Now I'm thinking of ribosomes and them evolving... I'm not even really sure what I just read.. I gotta stop drinking and reading science.

Here is the PLoS ONE article:
