Famous Quote for Science March

We are all in this picture. Can you find us?
As a person who puts great importance in both science and faith, I love this quote from British physicist, chemist, and mathematician Sir William Bragg: From religion comes a man's purpose; from science, his power to achieve it. Sometimes people ask if religion and science are not opposed to one another. They are: in the sense that the thumb and fingers of my hands are opposed to one another. It is an opposition by means of which anything can be grasped.

Here's to everyone in 2017 who marched for science on Earth Day, including ministers. Hats off to the lot of you. Let's make sure politicians don't ignore the hard evidence of science as we move forward, especially in regards to climate change, or we will be entirely responsible for the sixth great extinction event of planet Earth.
