Would you rather the senate be made up of lawyers who only care about what they can do for themselves with their power without getting into trouble? Im not saying all Senators and lawyers and businessmen are cutthroat monsters only out for themselves, but DeGrasse has a point. There is not a single representative of the scientific community on the Senate, yet the Senate is supposed to make informed decisions about things that often include scientific studies.

What's up with scientists thinking everybody should be a scientist? Honestly, this quote is kind of dumb. As a writer and philosopher, I can alter it pretty simply:   
"Every kid starts out as a natural-born free thinker and imaginative philosopher, and then we beat it out of them by institutionalization and telling kids to simply believe what is taught to them. A few trickle through the system with their wonder and enthusiasm for questioning knowledge still in tact."   
Honestly, and no disrespect to scientists or Sagan, once you encounter scholars in a liberal environment you will find that scientists and scholars with a background in the sciences are the most close-minded scholars and professors out there. Their stubborn refusal for anything not to be accounted by science alienates thoughts about logic, ethics, or even why physics works and how the laws of nature came to be.

I'm open for anything supernatural, I honestly want there to be something, but they've just simply got to prove it, look at James Randi, one million dollars to anyone who prove their claims of anything supernatural, may take you an hour to prove it, buuuut, nope.

I honestly can't blame someone to get skeptical when it comes to stuff you'd basicly call carnival tricks that fools people of their money and health being practiced for thousands of years.
User avatar #60 to #56 - Cambro (01/06/2013) [-]
I'm not talking about supernatural, I am talking about metaphysical There could be many things that are not physical that are still natural, yet they are discounted by science. Logic and logical truths are great examples. Did logic arise from the brain as it evolved, or can the evolved brain simply use logic? And if the brain can only use logic, why do logical truths exist? Why is 2+2 4? Of course you can say "well if you have 2 things and then 2 more you have 4 things" but that is just demonstrating the truth. Why is it a truth? How could it possibly be a truth? How can something that cannot be empirically tested by true? Modern science is absolutely bound to materialism, but what if materialism is false in any part at all (which it appears it is)?

Finally, let me say this: What we know of science and our world is thro our senses. We have our senses thro our sensory organs. Our sensory organs have evolved. So, then, what if there are senses we do not yet have? There could be multitudes of unexplored areas of the universe simply because we cannot see, hear, touch, smell, or taste them yet. So now science is not only bound by the material, it is also bound by the human body and its capacity to know.
User avatar #92 to #60 - certifiedidiot ONLINE (01/06/2013) [-]
Thought we were talking about a superior deity which created heaven and earth, which speaks through burning bushes, how some people would say ''You can't explain that''
#67 to #60 - bobsagetissocool (01/06/2013) [-]
There ARE senses we don't have, and they have been explored empirically through scientific research, such as the ability to see infrared light with the naked eye, or echolocation (although some humans do adapt with echolocation after going blind). We know that senses exist that we do not directly or normally possess.
Also, logic is a more difficult subject, but with regards to the idea that 2 + 2 = 4 (which I'm preeeetty sure is true), that is only true insofar as we have constructed a logical mathematical system in which 2 represents what 2 represents, and 4 represents what 4 represents, and + means what it means. For example, if + meant we should subtract, or 4 had the same meaning as 3, then that mathematical proposition would be false. The logical truth of that mathematical statement is dependent upon the human construction involved in mathematics, although said mathematical truths obviously do exist independent of our minds (adding 2 rocks to 2 rocks does give you 4 rocks, but we use numbers to understand this).

I agree that philosophy is definitely vital (unlike many people and intellectuals today) to the human understanding of the world, and science itself is nothing more than the application of a particular philosophy of knowledge (empiricism), and yes, there is definitely a bias in favour of science, people who view science as being "the answer" to every human question. But it IS definitely a viable source for information regarding the way the world works.
User avatar #79 to #67 - Cambro (01/06/2013) [-]
Excellent response, friend. I do not wish to deny science as a valid source of information, I just wish to not include it as the canon or measuring rod. There is a quote that says (I am paraphrasing) "When science begins grasping things of a transcendent and non-physical variety, the expansions science will make will be historic." The study of psychology is the beginning of this, but it is just the cusp.
User avatar #54 to #24 - zzonked (01/06/2013) [-]
Ever read 'Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance'? Sounds up your street for what you've just said about yourself. Your last paragraph reminded me a bit of that, the main character constantly has struggles with his desire for logic and reason, how it's flawed and how to reconcile the 'classic' and 'romantic' schools of thought.

Interesting, if a bit confusing.
User avatar #52 to #24 - ohgodmysides (01/06/2013) [-]
I think the quote is about curiosity. The desire to find out exactly how things work is born within us and once we grow up starts to shift into simply accepting reality as it is without questioning it at all.

As we grow older and learn what things are made for, we stop looking for unusual uses. We become shaped by what is taught to us in school and don't search for different answers.

A grown up knows about 15-20 uses for a melon, a genius 200+. Nearly any kid knows about the same amount. The number starts dropping once the kids enter school...

It's not about the profession. Every profession has great and ****** people in it.
It's about the idea of being a scientist, which basically everybody can be.
#58 to #52 - bobsagetissocool (01/06/2013) [-]
To be fair, the same thing occurs with language; we are born with the potential to learn any language, but, as we are generally constrained within a culture which utilizes one primary language and are brought up around it, we become adjusted to that one language and, by the time opportunities to learn other languages become available, that linguistic "sponge" is generally gone and learning languages takes much more effort.

I think the same thing is true of our knowledge; children are generally very absorptive of the ideas taught to them by others, and, despite the natural curiosity of children, the ideas that their parents, etc. teach them direct their concept of the universe in a particular direction and cut them off from their natural curiosity.

This might have some common evolutionary function - the absorption of values, ideas, etc. at an early age guarantees survival and prosperity within the group to which said values belong.

It's depressing, considering our society and the institutions (family, schools, etc.) are often inadequate in imbuing children with constructive values and just end up constraining them and narrowing their perception in harmful ways (parental authority on issues can act as a deterrent to independent thinking, as the parent's will is generally viewed as being above the child's as a rule both by society at large as well as by the children themselves). I don't think, however, that's it's purely an institutional phenomena... I think there's something instinctual to it, unfortunately.
User avatar #74 to #58 - ohgodmysides (01/06/2013) [-]
Well, it's proven that there is only a small time window in which children can learn all the phonemes of a language and after that it's very hard to learn them.
I am not sure if this has been done on the diverse thinking I talked about.

And I am highly in doubt there is that window for curiosity.
I just think the way school teaches us "there is one answer, you have it right or wrong" hinders that natural curiosity.
#76 to #74 - bobsagetissocool (01/06/2013) [-]
Socialization certainly serves a function similar to curtailing thinking, albeit that isn't its primary goal; I wouldn't say there's anything directly corresponding to narrowing thought patterns. I just feel that, in a sense, there is an instinctual cause to that curiosity being pulled down, and it's the socialization and the way it affects most people - by imprinting modes of thought, values, beliefs,etc., the human is ensured of its survival within its given social unit, whereas if that thought-constraining didn't occur it would be more likely to be in danger or disarray because the discrepancy between the person's beliefs and the group's would cause conflict.

I think that's part of the reason WHY the way schools work affects us the way it does, is what I'm saying.
User avatar #88 to #76 - ohgodmysides (01/06/2013) [-]
I can see your point, but... now that we know how it affects us badly (the environment that would need straight believing ONE answer isn't given anymore)... wouldn't it be time to get rid of that way of teaching and find a workaround?
#214 to #88 - bobsagetissocool (01/06/2013) [-]
I agree, I'm not at all suggesting it to be a good thing, I'm just saying that it's not simply a phenomena specific to our society; our society's way of constraining thinking is in many ways part of a more basic evolutionary process. I feel it to be bad as well.

That's because most scientists only believe in things that there is evidence for and can be proven through the scientific method.

I know there are some religious scientists, but things like "why physics works and how the laws of nature came to be" are the things that scientists try to find out through testing and finding evidence, rather than just saying "eh, I dunno, God did it."

similar things happen to me with my extreme ADHD. now i know what you all are thinking, oh its just an excuse given all the time but at least for me its not. its not a matter of intelligence to do simple homework, in fact i struggle much more in classes like English or History than in advanced science classes. the thing is im great at history, and im a great reader too. i had the reading level of a high school senior when i was in 3rd grade. also in 3rd grade while being tested for ADHD i had around a 135 iq. i know that doesnt mean everything but having problems focusing ruins me. its like a basketball star with Asthma, it limits the thing im greatest at. for anyone who still thinks oh its just a made up condition, i think its just misdiagnosed. i was always a smart kid, everyone could see that, i was talking about speed of light and understanding high level science when i was young. but then in 3rd grade i had the testing because i got bad grades Bs and Cs. i was too smart for that, they realized something was wrong. i got a medicine and next year? straight As. but now its worse, im on a different medicine now, the old one worked but had bad side effects. vyvanse, is similar to adderall, its horrible even worse than that. it feels like its rotting my mind, but i tried going off during the summer, and when got back to school, i couldn't stay focused, worsened by the fact my adhd causes sleep problems and i couldn't stay awake enough to have energy to focus. having adhd is like thinking through fog, it slows down everything. with stimulants, i get a surge of mental energy in the day, im able to focus perfectly. however oddly enough i stiill need extra time, which is embarrassing considering i still get great grades they think i dont need it. yet i cant think quick, thats part of adhd you act on impulse rather than thnking, takes too long. its an enourmous effort just to get a thought to stick together too.

BEAR WITH ME... its a hard life though, maybe worse than being averagely smart. i end up in a similar position, not bad grades bout 3.9 GPA so far in high school. but the thing is, even when i can focus, it takes a while for that though to process, i need more time because of this. i feel not fair to everyone else though, i see people struggling for time who dont have adhd. its just they start pulling programs after i stopped IEP in 6th grade. i was on track again back then, and all they gave me was put me with the retarded kids, literally the retarded kids. no matter what i may say on the internet i dont honestly hate them. but still its degrading being seen as one of them. thats why i stopped it, and the only other programs i cant get because of having it not show negatively on my grades. what they dont get though is my teachers understand and have been giving me the time unofficially, thats why im doing fine, i just didnt need it in the past because i was so beyond the material i was learning. the other main issue is writing, i hate it. that makes it just great for focusing, its hard enough to focus as it is. dont tell me its a lack of discipline, ive been trying for years. the only way ive been able to do it so far is having the medicine right in my system. for example it took me untill 3am starting after school for a 40 line poem. but, on a Sunday when the meds are with me fully, i did a 5 page essay on a book i barely read and had to catch up on in about 2.5 hours, no trouble at all. but i cant just take it when i get home from school, ive already had some times where i go days without ability to sleep. thers other stuff too, my reading ability is wasted becuase ive lost all patients anymroe, ive got near debilitating OCD, Anxiety, Depression and the list goes on. WELL thats about it, i didnt come here to complain, i just came to share my story. i may not have found the solution yet, but i just wanna let any funnyjunkers know you can do it too. ...CONT

wow this is getting long i hope at least a few of you read this, not for the thumbs my life isn't that hard, although there is more if you are curious. had a alright family life well off financially, but i was near friendless growing up. adhd and especially ocd hurt me socially, but that's a story for another day, Basically what i wanted to say is that anyone suffering the same problems as me just know im here. anyone's free if ya wanna talk. BUT remember this isnt a story of wining, i didnt do this to complain about the problems, but it helps to share, to see if anyone else s i can help them with. im done looking for answers from other people, ive done that too much. for now i realy should share. yeah i haven't figured it all out yet but im working on it, and when i succeed il let you guys know. JUST remember that you aren't alone, and there is hope. many people i know go through worse stuff, and ive gotten to the point i saw death as the only other option. but i fought back, just as any of you should. I guess thats all i have to say from my long rant for now, so goodbye, goodluck, and MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU!

>World gains a grown man and doesn't improperly reward a little bitch



I say this as an individual who despises homework and will argue to the death about why we don't need it. The simple fact of the matter is, however, that it exists and the truly intelligent will realize its necessity and therefore do it.

I mean really, if you're actually a genius kid it will NOT take long for you to do your homework. 30 minutes a day and you can be the genius the world deserves. If you can't see that you are nowhere near as smart as you think you are.

It is just that homework is designed to help people learn things that they don't comprehend/practice. If we didn't get the material perhaps we wouldn't mind but since we do it gets not only tedious but dammed insulting that we need to do it over and over like some sort of idiot.

i would do homework and turn it in, only to get marked down on it because "you didn't do it the correct way" even though i had the answers right, so i said **** it. i ended up doing only the tests, and still ******* passed. thank god that retardation didn't happen the following year.

Yeah, this is true.

I'm just saying that under certain circumstances this is a bad thing. I had surgery that prevented me from coming to the last 2 months of school. I tried as hard as a could to get my homework made up with a tutor, but my english teacher still failed me, even though i could pass a class like that with my eyes closed. If the kid is lazy then he obviously has to stop being a whiney bitch

My English teacher gave me an 84, 1% off an A.
User avatar #195 to #50 - lapsushominum ONLINE (01/06/2013) [-]
At the risk of sounding retarded, am I missing something, or are the thresholds for the "A"s really 85%+ where you went to school?
User avatar #211 to #195 - cupcakedevourer (01/06/2013) [-]
Yeah, 85% is an A.
User avatar #215 to #211 - lapsushominum ONLINE (01/06/2013) [-]
Where did you go to school?! 85% is a B in all the places I've been. You don't get an A until usually about 94%

Well in that case I feel for you, bro. But the majority of people crying about homework don't have a legitimate argument against it.

Hope all turns out better than expected for you, man.

i bitch about homework all the freaking time. in the end i still do it. why because i'm smart enough to know that if i don't, i'm screwed over in 6 years..
User avatar #29 to #28 - djequalizee (01/06/2013) [-]
It's all good. I'm not saying homework is something you should ignore, but in my perfect world we would have to take notes and test scores would account for 100% of grade.

i guess that's just my opinion though

User avatar #15 to #7 - collegedood (01/05/2013) [-]
it's their fault for being lazy, not the school system's
User avatar #16 to #15 - djequalizee (01/05/2013) [-]
It's both, actually.

Say the kid gets sick a lot. Comes back to homework plus old homework, the homework piles on. can't get it all done in time.

If the kid is just lazy then yeah, it's their fault

guess you should have turned in your 						*******					 homework.

Why should I spend 5 hours a night doing your ****** "busy work" homework when I could be doing something worthwhile with my life?

**** homework, everything I've ever learned I've learned in the classroom, homework taught me absolutely nothing.
User avatar #171 to #140 - srskate ONLINE (01/06/2013) [-]
but you aren't doing anything worthwile. You are on funnyjunk.

Also, if you don't want to do your homework, you need to be smart enough to get away with not doing.

No biggie. Your message is more important. Green thumb for you.

I agree with this. Everyone is born creative, but our school education system worldwide tends to put academic skill way more ahead of say, music, art, dance, etc. We don't live in the industrial revolution anymore, people!
