One of the first principles of Science was fully ingrained into me at a very young age - so young in fact, that I am not even sure that I had ever heard the word "science" at that point of my life. I'll explain : It happened while playing with my siblings and cousins at my Aunt and Uncles place. My uncle Carl, knowing of my curious and inquisitive nature, showed me a small glass jar with a dozen or so "beans" in it. "You will like these", he said. "Just beans", I said. "Are you sure", he asked, as he placed three of the "beans" into my hand, and said "Hold these in your hands for a little bit". After a short amount of time, the "beans" began to move around in my hands! A b j e c t F a s c i n a t i o n ! ! ! "Things ain't always what they seem", said my uncle Carl. I kept those "beans" for years! Objectivity, I found out years later, is a very important aspect of all of the Sciences. When observing any "event", or any "evidence", be it "physical", or "written", or "anecdotal" : Maintain Objectivity! Objective Observation basically means that the observation is "independent of mind". They contain no personal or individual "slant" or "perspective". An Objective Observation is perceived by all observers. Subjective Observations are not "independent of mind". They are influenced by ones own prejudices, biases, personal beliefs, feelings, emotions or attitude. A Subjective Observation is perceived only by an individual observer. My own, "Just beans", was a Subjective Observation! I learned quite a bit that day! 1.) - Should SciForums allow or condone Subjective Observations in discussions about Science? 2.) - Should not all Members of SciForums respect Science by keeping Subjective Observations out of all discussions?
