My mind goes back to a Carl Sagan video I once saw, where he commented on apparent simplistic questions by children that most adults simply brush off with such remarks as "Don't ask silly questions Johnny!" or "Go and ask Daddy" instead of the less put down remark of "I'm not sure Johnny, let's go check it up in Encyclopedia Britannica, or google it" or possibly even "We don't really know Johnny, but perhaps one day you might discover the answer yourself if you decide to be a scientists". Let's look at our printed media........Near every daily paper and/or magazine has a column devoted to the greatest fraud ever perpetrated by ignorant man....Astrology Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! But how many have a daily "science column" that may explain in simple terms the questions asked by Johnny...questions like, "Why is the grass green" or "Why is the sky blue" How many come to science forums such as this, to keep up with the latest knowledge and discoveries re science and physics....how many know that forums such as this even exist. How many ordinary folk are familiar with great scientific minds beyond Hawking, Einstein, Newton, Curie or Galilleo. Names such as Bohr, Feynman and Bethe are unknown to them. Even the late, great Carl Sagan, in my opinion, the greatest educator of our time, is comparitively unknown by most. And yet we have those stupid, fraudulent nonsensical astrology columns in near all daily Newspapers and the simplest questions as to why the sky is blue and why the grass is green remain unanswered for curious young minds! Can someone give me a logical explanation as to why that is so? From your friendly science forum cheerleader! Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
