In his book "The Grand Design", Hawking makes an essential point:
"In the history of science we have discovered a sequence of better and better theories and models" working toward an explanation of the universe that is not only increasingly inclusive of the many "forces" of the universe, but increasingly predictive and inclusive.
How can this elegant sense of the history and purpose of science be used to counter the increasingly popular anti-science mentality so prevalent in the United States?
Unfortunately, it can't. People don't really care about science for the most part. The only thing we have going for science is the fact that it creates technology,and people aren't going to knock that. Thus, they will tolerate science as long as it brings them goodies.
Science is everything.
If we care about God, we care about science.
If we care about science, we care about God.
If we care about survival, we care about God and science.
