For The Love Of Science

Popularity 3Viewed 4927 times 2016-11-9 23:26 |System category:Others| science

What do you think of the lives of great scientists? These admirable and inspiring trail-blazers bring intellectual progress to the human species which materializes into the physical well-being and better quality of life for all human beings. Do you have an opinion of what a great scientist should be? Please share your thoughts here, as this would make for an interesting read perhaps bringing inspiration to some especially the young.

Here is my take on what a great scientist is really like:

"A great scientist is absolutely in love with what he is doing, even obsessed with his work. He knows exactly what he is looking for, and will achieve his goal by using all angles and possibilities available to him. He will succeed or die trying to achieve that goal. Everything and everyone else will play a supportive role to his single-mindedness in his pursuit of the love of his life!"

The most important factor in the development of scientific discovery is now the ability to communicate and share information with other scientists around the world. Thereby many scientific ideas and developments are the result of several scientists work.

  • What Does the DNA Want? 2017-7-5 00:41

    Thanks, @Liononthehunt for sharing your views.

    DNA is actually the product of chemical reactions from the basic building-blocks of elementary particles, to larger molecules and the creation of genes. This DNA build-up eventually led to the conception of a finite life-form, and natural selection is the net 'chemical' attraction of one life-form for another choosing the 'fittest' (containing its personal biological master-plan or diversity among its species) for the survival of that particular species. Biological diversity (creating different species) exists not because of natural selection, but because of the location a species originates from. On a macro scale of life-forms or species, natural selection and survival of the fittest means the lion will kill the deer easily as it is fitter and stronger.  DNA itself doesn't see, and doesn't think, that I agree and may I add, doesn't care either - It just wants to follow the chemical laws!

    Your blog is reminiscent of a book written by Richard Dawkins that is titled The Selfish Genes.
    It is stated in the book genes' ultimate goal is to make sure they can survive and be passed down from generation to generation, and DNA as a genetic element of all living creature, adapts, mutates, or even recycles, by a mechanism called natural selection, and that is why biological diversity exists.
    I just beg to differ on your point of DNA evolving a master-plan to better its chance of survival through copulating with other members of its species, since it is also widely recognized this is the result of natural selection.  DNA itself doesn't see, and doesn't think either.
