Science and Irony

Updated on April 27, 2016

Science claims that bodily attractiveness decomposes, that skin-deep beauteousness decays. Bodily attractiveness will eventually plunge into decomposition. Skin-deep beauteousness will ultimately drop into decay. Decomposition, that the people in the science field, completely know. Decay, that the people in the science realm, totally understand. They unambiguously claim that decomposition is inevitable, that decay is inescapable. They undoubtedly claim that bodily attractiveness is transitory, that skin-deep beauteousness is ephemeral.

However, despite their knowledge, they value people based on their physical attributes. Despite their claim, they value people based on their physical appearances. They define people based on their bodily attractiveness, based on their skin-deep beauteousness. Bodily attractiveness, that they know, will eventually yield to decomposition. Skin-deep beauteousness, that they claim, will ultimately succumb to decay.

Ironic it is, but they themselves, the people who highly know decomposition, deem the bodily attractiveness as one’s worth. Ironic it is, but they themselves, the people who highly understand decay, deem the skin-deep beauteousness as one’s importance. They base worth on transitoriness. They base importance on ephemerality. They, the people who know, think oppositely to what they know. They, the people who understand, think contrarily to what they understand.

This is an irony of reality. This is an irony of life. The people who know, do not define themselves by what they know. The people who understand, do not define themselves by what they understand. Their knowledge, their claim, does not define them.
