Science describes. Nothing more.


A new type of quasar found, puzzles scientists since the current theories do not predict its existence. (1)

The process of science adapting to experimental data is so fast that we hardly ever notice the fact that theory comes AFTER observations…

Science is here to describe…

Nothing more.

All scientific models will always fit the data because they are all designed to… fit the data! (The ones which do not are simply not updated yet)

Wittgenstein, Godel and even Nietzsche tried to warn us. But in an era of scientism it is dangerous to speak against science.

But if you don’t trust me, trust your eyes.

Let the glass fall down.

And think: In the old days the glass went down because of… Zeus. Then came the field of gravity. And now we have… curved spacetime. In the future we might have strings or parallel universes. Who knows?

But guess what…

The glass will still fall the same way. And every single theory of the above will predict it. So stop seeing the obvious and instead concentrate on what you do not see. And only then will you see everything…

Science and logos is here to describe what you see.

Nothing more.

At the end there will be theories which explain the new quasar. And people will cheer. But only because people have forgotten that describing the new quasar was never our goal…

In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He has also worked as a phD researcher in the Advanced Materials sector related to the PCB industry. He likes reading and writting, not only philosophy but also in general. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans... Credo quia absurdum!
