Science, Art, Litt, Science based Art & Science Communication
Q: Doctors are giving conflicting advice. Allopathic doctors say one thing. Nature cure doctors say the opposite thing. Ayurvedic doctors say something in between. Homeopathic doctors say gibberish. Who should we follow? I am getting confused.
Genuine doctors depend on scientific research to come to a conclusion. Because science gives evidence based facts. What you should be listening to is evidence, not culturally conditioned age old advices that don't have any evidence to back up.
The word "Doctors" is not important. The word 'Allopathy' is not important, the words "nature cure " are not important.
Only evidence based fact is important to make the right decision.
Because I have seen even 'famous' doctors speaking rubbish on You Tube. I (and some of my colleagues) challenged them to prove what they are saying 's right several times. Know what? They keep quiet and don't give replies whenever I show them evidence. SO?!
Listen to genuine science and nothing or nobody else.
Q: If you are a scientist, does your world change completely?
Krishna: Being a scientist is a state of mind, not a profession.
When you reach that state of mind, yes, your world deviates from the ordinary world and you step into a completely different world.
Your whole outlook changes. Scientific method guides you in everything you do. Critical thinking, the highest form of thinking, makes you a totally divergent person.
That brings a conflict with others. But you can't do anything about it.
A mind that is broadened by immense knowledge can never go back to its original size. You can never see the world like you did earlier again.
You try to educate others too, and if they listen to you, you can get some peace of mind. Otherwise you try to avoid conflicts by avoiding people.
But it is a very wonderful world because it is based on reality, not imagination, knowledge, not ignorance, evidence based facts, not blind beliefs.
Q: Why do we have belly buttons, the holes in our stomach region? What is its real use?
Krishna: Before you were born was when you really used your belly button. Well, sort of…The belly button marks the spot where the umbilical cord connected your body to your mother's womb.
Q: Why do two equally qualified scientists, when given the same evidence, come up with two different opinions? One believes in evolution and the other in young Earth creation. Why?
Qualifications don’t denote equal mental processing of information. If your scientific training is inadequate, or if fear grips your mind, you cannot overcome your cultural, traditional, religious, emotional or political conditioning of mind. You try to process the information you have with your biased mentality.
Opinions don’t matter in science, anyway. Only evidence based facts make a difference here. If you just express your opinions without providing ‘genuine’ evidence, your opinion is as good as any layman’s words. Words written on water. They melt away as soon as written.
What is the use of such things?
Qualifications don’t matter, opinions don’t matter.
Only thing that matters is scientific method. If your theory is established using scientific method, it becomes an evidence based fact. Rest all is rubbish.
Q: How does science interact with your life?
Everything in this universe works based on scientific principles. Your life itself is based on science. You, I and this universe cannot live or work without science.
It isn’t just interaction. Science is the life of our lives!
Q: I'm confused; the early test results showed that the AstraZeneca vaccine had inferior protection to Pfizer, but the UK government recently reported that efficiency was roughly similar. Were the test conditions just different?
But this first one "Creativity Is Intelligence Having Fun" is true to a great extent. When you have intelligence, knowledge in several subjects, you try to creatively connect them and solve the problems faced by the world. That is really fun. I myself have experienced it. I think most of the scientists feel the same way while working in a lab. That is why they can go on and on despite the difficulties faced by them.
Whether Einstein said this or any other scientist did, it doesn’t matter.
I think the second one, "The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination" is a bit twisted. Einstein or any other scientist must have thought about 'his/her knowledge based or information loaded imagination as a scientist' when s/he said those words but people are interpreting it in several stupid ways!
