    Some Prefer to Question Long Held Beliefs, Than to Merely Listen and Follow Blindly

    Here our attempt is to get people to question long held beliefs, as opposed to listening and following blindly. We hope that everyone, someday, will be able to say that they were able to reason, gain evidence, and then understand the information in front of them before they decided to believe it. In this way, more people will think twice before believing in certain ideologies that will negatively affect them and those around them for the rest of their lives. Remember, just because you entertain a thought, it does not mean that you must accept it!

    Read From The Wise That Have Asked The Difficult Questions and Learned From Their Experiences

    “Man is a mystery. It needs to be unravelled, and if you spend your whole life unravelling it, don’t say that you’ve wasted time. I am studying that mystery because I want to be a human being.”

    ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky

    To ask the difficult questions and wanting satisfying answers is to be part of the human experience.

Where Are The Scientists In Congress?

by Justin Clark

A few years ago on Real Time with Bill Maher, astrophysicist and science communicator Neil deGrasse Tyson brought up a very interesting point about the United States Congress. “I wonder what profession all these Senators and Congressmen are? Law, law, law, law, business man, law, law. . . . There are no scientists? Where are the engineers? Where is the rest of life?,” quipped Tyson. The rest of life, indeed. According to a report released last year by the Congressional Research Service, there were only 11 members of Congress (out of 535) that were scientists or engineers; all of them were in the House of Representatives, with the exception of one engineer in the Senate. This is the very definition of disproportionate, seeing as by 2010, one in every 18 jobs in the United States was in Science, Technology, Engineering, or Math (STEM). By 2018, it is projected to be nearly one in five. If our congressional representation kept a parity with the private sector, there should be 30 scientists, rather than merely 11. By 2018, it should be closer to 91.
