we depend so much on science. medicinal science, environmental science, computer science, etc. science provides us with proof, right? observation, research, facts. we teach the laws of science to our children as absolute truth.
but i feel like every time i turn around the scientific powers-that-be are saying, hold up, hold up! we just found something that negates everything we thought WAS true and now THIS is true.
example. in the 1820's the first dinosaur bones were discovered in england. since then fossils have popped up all over the world and scores of creatures have been stacked up and displayed for us to ogle in museums. when i grew up, the brontosaurus was down right iconic. but scientists have since changed their story about the brontosaurus. they wrongly puzzled the bones of a couple different dinosaurs together when assembling that most famous long-neck. now the only place the brontosaurus exists is in fred flinstone's burger bun. the brontosaurus isn't the only dinosaur being scrutinized. i think the t-rex is said to have been feathered now, along with several other ancient over-sized lizards.
i appreciate and admire the exploration and evolution of science, but i'm finding more and more that what science is proving to me, is that the only truth that exists is love. (i know i sound incredibly cheesy but it's coming from the heart.)
when someone says, there's no scientific proof of god, so god doesn't exist, i think, just hold that thought... science is bound to discover the truth any time now. don't hold fast to science - the truth of it is, science is always changing so it'll only slip through your hands.
peace, love, gratitude,
props to beastie boys for the title of today's post. :-)
