Falsificationism In Science quotes by Robert Sheckley
#1. Science fiction is very healthy in its form. #Quote by Robert Sheckley
Falsificationism In Science quotes by Michio Kaku
#2. Ironically, the serious study of the impossible has frequently opened up rich and entirely unexpected domains of science. For example, over the centuries the frustrating and futile search for a "perpetual motion machine" led physicists to conclude that such a machine was impossible, forcing them to postulate the conservation of energy and the three laws of thermodynamics. Thus the futile search to build perpetual motion machines helped to open up the entirely new field of thermodynamics, which in part laid the foundation of the steam engine, the machine age, and modern industrial society. #Quote by Michio Kaku
Falsificationism In Science quotes by Raymond Loewy
#3. It would seem that more than function itself, simplicity is the deciding factor in the aesthetic equation. One might call the process beauty through function and simplification. #Quote by Raymond Loewy
Falsificationism In Science quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#4. Robert Kennedy, whose summer home is eight miles from the home I live in all year round, was shot two nights ago. He died last night. So it goes. Martin Luther King was shot a month ago. He died, too. So it goes. And every day my Government gives me a count of corpses created by military science in Vietnam. So it goes. My father died many years ago now - of natural causes. So it goes. He was a sweet man. He was a gun nut, too. He left me his guns. They rust. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Falsificationism In Science quotes by Harry Knowles
#5. For the last 30 years our cinemas have been ruled by science fiction and horror. We've had some very good Fantasy films in that time period, but for my tastes I still haven't seen fantasy done to absolute perfection. That is the hope I have in this project. #Quote by Harry Knowles
Falsificationism In Science quotes by Toni Jerrman
#6. I read a lot and fell in love with comics and science fiction. I even self-published some of my comics when I was 16 or 17. #Quote by Toni Jerrman
Falsificationism In Science quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#7. There ought not to be anything in the whole universe that man can't poke his nose into-that's the way we're built and I assume that there's some reason for that. #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein
Falsificationism In Science quotes by K. Lee Lerner
#8. There is unspeakable yet entirely preventable suffering in this world. The job of journalists and writers engaged with global issues is to articulate the unspeakable and give voice to solutions.
K. Lee Lerner #Quote by K. Lee Lerner
Falsificationism In Science quotes by Francois Arago
#9. I was often humiliated to see men disputing for a piece of bread, just as animals might have done. My feelings on this subject have very much altered since I have been personally exposed to the tortures of hunger. I have discovered, in fact, that a man, whatever may have been his origin, his education, and his habits, is governed, under certain circumstances, much more by his stomach than by his intelligence and his heart. #Quote by Francois Arago
Falsificationism In Science quotes by Lee Smolin
#10. Having begun my life in science searching for the equation beyond time, I now believe that the deepest secret of the universe is that its essence rests in how it unfolds moment by moment in time. #Quote by Lee Smolin
Falsificationism In Science quotes by Jesse L. Greenstein
#11. In a sense Shapley's telling me that space was transparent, which I shouldn't have believed, illustrates a fundamental problem in science, believing what people tell you. Go and find it out for yourself. That same error has persisted in my life and in many other people's. Authorities are not always authorities on everything; they often cling to their own mistakes. #Quote by Jesse L. Greenstein
Falsificationism In Science quotes by Oliver Sacks
#12. Some people with Tourette's have flinging tics- sudden, seemingly motiveless urges or compulsions to throw objects ... (I see somewhat similar flinging behaviors- though not tics- in my two year old godson, now in a stage of primal antinomianism and anarchy) #Quote by Oliver Sacks
Falsificationism In Science quotes by John Dewey
#13. Communication of science as subject-matter has so far outrun in education the construction of a scientific habit of mind that to some extent the natural common sense of mankind has been interfered with to its detriment. #Quote by John Dewey
Falsificationism In Science quotes by Isabel Briggs Myers
#14. ISTPs have a vested interest in practical and applied science, especially in the field of mechanics. #Quote by Isabel Briggs Myers
Falsificationism In Science quotes by Henri Poincare
#15. Consider now the Milky Way. Here also we see an innumerable dust, only the grains of this dust are no longer atoms but stars; these grains also move with great velocities, they act at a distance one upon another, but this action is so slight at great distances that their trajectories are rectilineal; nevertheless, from time to time, two of them may come near enough together to be deviated from their course, like a comet that passed too close to Jupiter. In a word, in the eyes of a giant, to whom our Suns were what our atoms are to us, the Milky Way would only look like a bubble of gas. #Quote by Henri Poincare
Falsificationism In Science quotes by Steven Weber
#16. Let me go out on a limb and suggest that those who see hints of a new class ideology developing around information technology are not necessarily wild-eyed. "Bit-twiddlers" are neither exactly proletariat nor bourgeoisie. They may not own the means of production in the sense that Marx argued, but they certainly do have significantly control over those means, in a more profound way than the term "symbols analysts" or "knowledge workers" captures. As a rough generalization, they value science and technological problem-solving elegance equally at least with profit. #Quote by Steven Weber
Falsificationism In Science quotes by Charles Darwin
#17. We cannot fathom the marvelous complexity of an organic being; but on the hypothesis here advanced this complexity is much increased. Each living creature must be looked at as a microcosm
a little universe, formed of a host of self-propagating organisms, inconceivably minute and as numerous as the stars in heaven. #Quote by Charles Darwin
Falsificationism In Science quotes by Wayne Teasdale
#18. Interspirituality is essentially an agent of a universal mysticism and integral spirituality. We often walk the interspiritual or intermystical path in an intuitive attempt to reach a more complete truth. That final integration, a deep convergence, is an integral spirituality. Bringing together all the great systems of spiritual wisdom, practice, insight, reflection, experience, and science provides a truly integral understanding of spirituality in its practical application in our lives, regardless of our tradition. #Quote by Wayne Teasdale
Falsificationism In Science quotes by Cesar Milstein
#19. Although the way ahead [for immunology] is full of pitfalls and difficulties, this is indeed an exhilarating prospect. There is no danger of a shortage of forthcoming excitement in the subject. Yet, as always, the highlights of tomorrow are the unpredictabilities of today. #Quote by Cesar Milstein
Falsificationism In Science quotes by Gian-Carlo Rota
#20. THE COMPUTER IS JUST AN INSTRUMENT for doing faster what we already know how to do slower. All pretensions to computer intelligence and paradise-tomorrow promises should be toned down before the public turns away in disgust. And if that should happen, our civilization might not survive. #Quote by Gian-Carlo Rota
Falsificationism In Science quotes by Antonio Rossano Mendes Pontes
#21. Watching large mammals living their ordinary life in the jungle is extraordinary #Quote by Antonio Rossano Mendes Pontes
Falsificationism In Science quotes by Paramahansa Yogananda
#22. The Western day is indeed nearing when the inner science of self-control will be found as necessary as the outer conquest of nature. This new Atomic Age will see men's minds sobered and broadened by the now scientifically indisputable truth that matter is in reality a concentrate of energy. #Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda
Falsificationism In Science quotes by Frank Drake
#23. To use Newton's words, our efforts up till this moment have but turned over a pebble or shell here and there on the beach, with only a forlorn hope that under one of them was the gem we were seeking. Now we have the sieve, the minds, the hands, the time, and, particularly, the dedication to find those gems-no matter in which favorite hiding place the children of distant worlds have placed them. #Quote by Frank Drake
Falsificationism In Science quotes by Matthew McConaughey
#24. I do believe in God, but I think it's very healthy for a believer to spend time in the pragmatism of agnosticism, and I think God appreciates agnostics trying to make a science of it and going, "I will not believe any further than that." I enjoy that kind of engineering mind. In no way did it ever feel blasphemous to me as a man of faith. #Quote by Matthew McConaughey
Falsificationism In Science quotes by Doris Kearns Goodwin
#25. (from John Hay's diary) "The President never appeared to better advantage in the world," Hay proudly noted in his diary. "Though He knows how immense is the danger to himself from the unreasoning anger of that committee, he never cringed to them for an instant. He stood where he thought he was right and crushed them with his candid logic. #Quote by Doris Kearns Goodwin
Falsificationism In Science quotes by David Hillis
#26. There is absolutely no scientific basis or evidence for 'intelligent design.' It is simply a religious assertion, and it has no place in a science course. #Quote by David Hillis
Falsificationism In Science quotes by Robert Breault
#27. In comparing religious belief to science, I try to remember that science is belief also. #Quote by Robert Breault
Falsificationism In Science quotes by John Lubbock
#28. If we succeed in giving the love of learning, the learning itself is sure to follow. #Quote by John Lubbock
Falsificationism In Science quotes by Stuart A. Kauffman
#29. Pick up a pinecone and count the spiral rows of scales. You may find eight spirals winding up to the left and 13 spirals winding up to the right, or 13 left and 21 right spirals, or other pairs of numbers. The striking fact is that these pairs of numbers are adjacent numbers in the famous Fibonacci series: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21... Here, each term is the sum of the previous two terms. The phenomenon is well known and called phyllotaxis. Many are the efforts of biologists to understand why pinecones, sunflowers, and many other plants exhibit this remarkable pattern. Organisms do the strangest things, but all these odd things need not reflect selection or historical accident. Some of the best efforts to understand phyllotaxis appeal to a form of self-organization. Paul Green, at Stanford, has argued persuasively that the Fibonacci series is just what one would expects as the simplest self-repeating pattern that can be generated by the particular growth processes in the growing tips of the tissues that form sunflowers, pinecones, and so forth. Like a snowflake and its sixfold symmetry, the pinecone and its phyllotaxis may be part of order for free #Quote by Stuart A. Kauffman
Falsificationism In Science quotes by Aristotle.
#30. For nature by the same cause, provided it remain in the same condition, always produces the same effect, so that either coming-to-be or passing-away will always result. #Quote by Aristotle.
Falsificationism In Science quotes by Paul Edward Gottfried
#31. ...obscurantist feature in social scientists trying to combine pluralism with environmentalism. They are so preoccupied with the role of prejudice in creating hostile environments that they perpetually deny the obvious, that stereotypes are rough generalizations about groups derived from long-term observation. Such generalizations are usually correct in describing group tendencies and in predicting certain collective actions, even if they do not adequately account for differences among individuals. Nonetheless, as Goldberg explains, the self-described pluralist and prominent psychologist Gordon Allport went out of his way in The Nature of Prejudice (1954) to reject stereotypes as factually inaccurate as well as socially harmful. For Allport and a great many other social Scientists, nothing is intuitively correct unless it is politically so. #Quote by Paul Edward Gottfried
Falsificationism In Science quotes by Madame De Stael
#32. Where no interest is takes in science, literature and liberal pursuits, mere facts and insignificant criticisms necessarily become the themes of discourse; and minds, strangers alike to activity and meditation, become so limited as to render all intercourse with them at once tasteless and oppressive. #Quote by Madame De Stael
Falsificationism In Science quotes by Harry Stack Sullivan
#33. The psychiatric interviewer is supposed to be doing three things: considering what the patient could mean by what he says; considering how he himself can best phrase what he wishes to communicate to the patient; and, at the same time, observing the general pattern of the events being communicated. In addition to that, to make notes which will be of more than evocative value, or come anywhere near being a verbatim record of what is said, in my opinion is beyond the capacity of most human beings. #Quote by Harry Stack Sullivan
Falsificationism In Science quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
#34. In 2002, having spent more than three years in one residence for the first time in my life, I got called for jury duty. I show up on time, ready to serve. When we get to the voir dire, the lawyer says to me, "I see you're an astrophysicist. What's that?" I answer, "Astrophysics is the laws of physics, applied to the universe - the Big Bang, black holes, that sort of thing." Then he asks, "What do you teach at Princeton?" and I say, "I teach a class on the evaluation of evidence and the relative unreliability of eyewitness testimony." Five minutes later, I'm on the street.

A few years later, jury duty again. The judge states that the defendant is charged with possession of 1,700 milligrams of cocaine. It was found on his body, he was arrested, and he is now on trial. This time, after the Q&A is over, the judge asks us whether there are any questions we'd like to ask the court, and I say, "Yes, Your Honor. Why did you say he was in possession of 1,700 milligrams of cocaine? That equals 1.7 grams. The 'thousand' cancels with the 'milli-' and you get 1.7 grams, which is less than the weight of a dime." Again I'm out on the street. #Quote by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Falsificationism In Science quotes by Jenny Lawson
#35. It's been my experience that people always assume that generalized anxiety disorder is preferable to social anxiety disorder, because it sounds more vague and unthreatening, but those people are totally wrong. For me, having generalized anxiety disorder is basically like having all of the other anxiety disorders smooshed into one. Even the ones that aren't recognized by modern science. Things like birds-will-probably-smother-me-in-my-sleep anxiety disorder and I-keep-crackers-in-my-pocket-in-case-I-get-trapped-in-an-elevator anxiety disorder. Basically I'm just generally anxious about f***ing everything. In fact, I suspect that's how they came up with the name. #Quote by Jenny Lawson
Falsificationism In Science quotes by James D. Watson
#36. [When asked by a student if he believes in any gods]
Oh, no. Absolutely not ... The biggest advantage to believing in God is you don't have to understand anything, no physics, no biology. I wanted to understand. #Quote by James D. Watson
