What we teach in science, the principles, the laws, the theories are nothing more than a collection of models that best fits the observations and data available to us.
There are some things that are critically important to maintain believable independence. You would not trust your doctor, for example, if you knew she was working for a pharmaceutical company.
“Out there”, the sciences blend and work together in perfect harmony to keep things going and growing. And yet, as we think of the “disciplines” of science, we often don’t think of their interconnectedness.
The soil would be mathematics in which all of the sciences are firmly planted. Math is the language of science. The roots would be physics. Physics is the study of energy, and without energy, there would be nothing else. Einstein, in fact, demonstrated the mathematical relationship between mater and energy in his famous equation. Chemistry would be the trunk. Chemistry is the study of matter, which encompasses everything in our experience with the exception of pure energy. Because everything is made of matter, all other disciplines are the branches of the tree, all related to chemistry.
Are you allowed to disagree with your college professors? Well of course you are. Good professors understand this. The best professors encourage it.
Thus, on hot days, it's not uncommon to see fish seeming to sleep near the surface.
You can't find it on a web search, because nobody but you knows it.
The technical term for how small molecules are is, in scientific jargon, "itty bitty".
we would excite students about the discipline from a young age, produce students who understand the basic laws of science, and how to do research and learn terminology on their own, leading to self-reliance.
One of the most bizarre arguments with a student I have ever had was with one of these students, who asked me where I had my medical training. I explained that I've never had medical training, to which he insisted that, yes, clearly I have because I know too much about medicine, and where did I get it?
