  • I agree that science is driving change in our lives.  Given how science (if you include technology as part of science) has transformed our life expectancy and quality of life.  The pace of change will exponentially accelerate over this century with robotics, biotech, cognitive computing.  Our lives between now and next 50 years will be contrasted as Amish community vs us today.

    It really depends on your definition of science. If by science, you mean:
    a method of procedure that has characterized natural science since the 17th century, consisting in systematic observation, measurement, and experiment, and the formulation, testing, and modification of hypotheses; 
    I'm with you.

    If by science you mean: We come from monkeys, who came from stars a few Brazilian years ago because we say so, I'd have to politely disagree.
