I love science. Science is such an awesome and interesting subject.
What is Science?
Science means ‘to know’. The dictionary definitions tend to focus on systematic classification and careful collection of data: Things that can be observed, tested, and demonstrated.
Why are there lies in our text books?
So why is there so much that isn’t science being taught in our school’s science lesson? Why are there so many lies in our text books? And why are there still displays in our national museums that teach these lies as facts?
Last June I took a trip to the National History Museum in London.
As you can see the original bones of ‘Lucy’ are on display for all to see. What they forget to tell you though, in the little explanation underneath, is that there is much controversy over whether ‘Lucy’ is the ‘missing link’ between humans and apes or whether she is just simply another chimpanzee.
Donald Johanson used some very bold and imaginative language concerning his find and was very confident in his claims that ‘Lucy’ walked upright.
