Science

Science is the pursuit of knowledge. Its methods help the human race to build and organize knowledge through empirical evidence gained by observation and experimentation. It is the one of the greatest tools we have in the fight against darkness. Science unlocks the fundamental mysteries of nature and our universe, but the scientific path is not without peril. Moral and ethical questions must at all times be asked of our increasing knowledge: just because we have the scientific ability to do something, should we do it on moral grounds? According to François Rabelais, "science without conscience is but the soul's perdition." Science is also limited to the senses of mankind. We have tools to help us see in wavelengths above normal human eyesight, and yet some physicists admit that we may never have scientific instrumentation to be able to observe the theoretical "strings" at the quantum level. Science has elevated humanity above the common brute, but we must always remember that science is just one tool of many that can assist us in unlocking the mysteries of the universe.
