"Why We Need to Understand Science" - Carl Sagan

This quote was added by trappleton
Science is much more than a body of knowledge. It is a way of thinking... It urges on us a fine balance between no-holds-barred openness to new ideas, however heretical, and the most rigorous skeptical scrutiny of everything - new ideas and established wisdom. We need wide appreciation of this kind of thinking. It works. It's an essential tool for a democracy in an age of change. Our task is not just to train more scientists but also to deepen public understanding of science.
