On science, skepticism, philosophy, animals, and life
pondering deep or just asleep?
"I think if we ever reach the point where we think we thoroughly understand who we are and where we came from, we will have failed. I think this search....goes with a courageous intent to greet the universe as it really is, not to foist our emotional predisposition on it but to courageuosly accept what our explorations tell us."
"The knock on science from its cultural and religious critics is that it is arrogant and materialistic...So the story goes...But this is balderdash. Science is not a monument of received Truth but something that people do to look for truth."
