We are lucky to be living in a time when science is finding out so much about the world and universe around us.
It boggles the mind!
We are flying through space at 65,000 miles per hour around the Sun.
Faster than jet planes.
We are so small in comparison to the universe.
In our galaxy, The Milky Way”, there are billions of stars.
Time is very interesting to think about also.
We know about the “Big Bang” that created our universe is 13.7 billion years old.
The Earth is around 4.5 billion years old
Humans are about 130,000 years old–mere babies!
I don’t know about you, but I get very excited just thinking how lucky we are to belong to a species that is very intelligent to figure this stuff out BUT also to appreciate the fact that we are part of it all albeit a very small part.
Human history and prehistory is also very interesting.
Archaeology tells us about the tools and art of everyday people long ago.
History is the greatest story of all!
With all this science going on who needs silly conspiracy theories.
The rate of scientific progress is accelerating.
Technology is close to many breakthroughs that could change our lives overnight.
DOES THIS MEAN A FANTASTIC FUTURE OR AN END TO CIVILIZATION AS WE KNOW IT?
Either way, it’s going to be interesting.
Coming up is a golden age of discovery, a leap forward.
This might not feel like such a wonderful time because of wars, poverty, crime, and political nonsense.
But that’s not the whole story.
I hope we can raise humankind to a higher plane–someday.
Be thankful for the magnificent brain you have.
Question everything and think like a scientist.
Don’t throw your life away on dead-end beliefs.
THINK BEFORE YOU BELIEVE.
The advantage of studying history is that it keeps you from feeling too important.
History is simply a record of man’s intelligence–OR lack of it.
THE OLDER I GET, THE LESS I KNOW. TECHNOLOGY HAS LEFT ME IN IT’S WAKE. OH, I CAN USE THE CELL PHONE, AND UPLOAD AND DOWNLOAD AND DO ALL THE THINGS A 6 YEAR OLD CAN DO, BUT I’M NOT AT ALL SURE OF WHAT I’M DOING.
THE WORLD IS CHANGING SO FAST, DAVE, IT’S TOUGH TO KEEP UP. THE NEW SHOW, THE DIRECTOR IS SENDING THE CAST THE WORDS AND MUSIC IN “DROPBOX”. IT’S VERY SIMPLE, EVEN FOR ME. I DON’T HOW IT WORKS, BUT IT DOES.
I KNOW MY COMMENT IS NOT ABOUT HISTORY.
DAVE, I AM HISTORY AND IF I HAD TO TAKE A TEST ON MY OWN PAST, I THINK I WOULD FAIL.
I SEEM TO BE RAMBLING SO I’LL SAY FAREWELL FOR NOW.
