This was written August 26, 2011 as a little journal entry for my psychology class.

 

In my opinion, Science is basically the process of discovery and finding out how something works. It could be a theory, a social experiment, or just wanting to figure out why something is the way it is. Anything could be a part of Science.

However, I don’t completely trust research. I find it to be mostly made up of hard facts, statistics, and data. I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with wanting to know the exact figures of findings, but to me there is so much more to life than seeing it on an empirical level. I’m a big believer in faith, spirituality, and the mystical. Some things just can’t be described and explained by numbers and percentages. Sometimes it just needs to be accepted that it’s beyond the capabilities of man to fathom and dissect. That’s my biggest problem with science and why I don’t particularly care for certain fields of it (Psychology not included). Scientists often try to “play God,” so to speak, and it can frustrate me.

All in all, it’s great to make ground-breaking discoveries and explain new findings on meanings of life, but in the end, there will always be something beyond our control and capabilities. I wish that more people accepted that.
