Western science is about discovering new things

My response to the statement "Western Science is just starting to really find its feet, is that well of course it is. Western Science is relatively recent and the whole history of the human race. And so, of course, [inaudible] finding things out as we go along. Western Science is about finding out new things. It doesn't mean that we're gonna stand on a stable foundation forever. Now is the good thing in Science. Whenever you are making a scientific discovery, you'd test your hypothesis, you find evidence, you support it, and then if you don't find evidence to support it. Or if you find evidence to the contrary, you have to throw it out and start all over again. That doesn't sound very stable because it's not supposed to be. Science is supposed to be about progress and so that means that Western Science will always be finding new footing on new ground and then Western Science will subsequently lose that footing and find something new. And that's not a good thing. Right now, it's an exciting time to be alive because inside we want that were true or found to be amazingly false. And there's so much mystery still in the universe. So, I feel that I'm happy to be alive in a time when Western Science is just starting to get a footing and find its grasp in our culture in different ways.
