The Sound of Science

Science is a beautiful thing, and part of its beauty, I think, is due to its self-critical nature: it constantly questions itself, it demands of itself a higher standard of evidence and theoretical sophistication than most other forms of inquiry, it democratizes its methods and discoveries, it sets upon itself the burden of proof, it invites dissent and scrutiny by the anonymity of the peer review process, it conjures up wildly imaginative experiments in order to eliminate noisy variables, and it constantly reevaluates its views when confronted with evidence that challenges previously held beliefs.

As it that weren't enough, it also happens to inspire some pretty good music. I think Simon & Garfunkel would approve, as would Darwin.



Or if you prefer, you could always sing along to Chumbawamba's song Charlie.
