If the entire course of evolution were compressed into a single year, the earliest bacteria would appear at the end of March, but we wouldn’t see the first human ancestors until 6 a.m. on December 31st. The golden age of Greece, about 500 BC, would occur just thirty seconds before midnight.
Amaing! #science #evolution
As my old professor Carl Sagan said, ‘When you’re in love, you want to tell the world’. And I base my beliefs on the information and process that we call ‘science’. It fills me with joy to make discoveries everyday of things I’ve never seen before. It fills me with joy to know that we can pursue these answers. It is a wonderful and astonishing thing to me that we are - you and I are - somehow at least one of the ways that the universe knows itself. You and I are a product of the universe. Its astonishing that we have come to be because of the universe’s existence. And we are driven to pursue that - to find out where we came from…
The process of science, the way we know nature, is the most compelling thing to me.
