John [email protected] Lyrics: [Michael Shermer] Science is the best tool ever devised For understanding how the world works [Jacob Bronowski] Science is a very human form of knowledge We are always at the brink of the known [Carl Sagan] Science is a collaborative enterprise Spanning the generations We remember those who prepared the way Seeing for them also [Neil deGrasse Tyson] If you're scientifically literate, The world looks very different to you And that understanding empowers you Refrain: [Richard Dawkins] There's real poetry in the real world Science is the poetry of reality [Sagan] We can do science And with it, we can improve our lives [Jill Tarter] The story of humans is the story of ideas That shine light into dark corners [Lawrence Krauss] Scientists love mysteries They love not knowing [Richard Feynman] I don't feel frightened by not knowing things I think it's much more interesting [Brian Greene] There's a larger universal reality of which we are all a part [Stephen Hawking] The further we probe into the universe The more remarkable are the discoveries we make [Carolyn Porco] The quest for the truth, in and of itself, Is a story that's filled with insights (Refrain) [Greene] From our lonely point in the cosmos We have through the power of thought Been able to peer back to a brief moment After the beginning of the universe [PZ Myers] I think that science changes the way your mind works To think a little more deeply about things [Dawkins] Science replaces private prejudice With publicly verifiable evidence (Refrain)
