Tim Minchin on science

Postby Elessar » Sat Nov 02, 2013 1:13 pm

This guy makes a habit of saying what I'm thinking in a far better way than I could:

He's right when he talks about conforming to stereotypes. As science should be unemotional and impartial, people feel that if they want to be emotional and biased, they must reject science. It's bonkers.

Clever guy.

Met him outside the Dominion, that night they had that big party in there a couple of years back.

:yell:
~Godspeed little one~
~Don't talk about angels
Or how I'll be saved
I'm no coward
But I'm not that brave
Rags are blowing
Rain's getting near
I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~

~Sleep in peace old friend for me you'll never die~
