Science! Beautiful foundation grantee of Dale Carnegie!
Rationale for indignation and self-righteous anomie!
In our proud experimental delusional hypotheses,
All creation becomes as one as subjects for busybodies.
Compelled by reason and by want and by wish to make men see
By denial and by worry, that he by scheming comes to be.
And every adage and each platitude has a mathematic match
In the halls of law and folly each scientist seeks parity!
Oh, science, your many suns don't fly but orbit, measurably,
One astronomer's relevance and one more center of gravity.
Oh, all the arts and every method bows before your expertise
Until superstition is in turn practiced as effectively.
Global warming, air pollution, poverty we turn to thee
To solve each enduring worry that by your office came to be.
The lens of thy microscope we turn to for hope and the broad view
Pettiness and warlike nature, conquered by an emperor with Ph.D.
SCIENTIFIC METHOD, n. The objective process of inquiry, observation, hypothesis, measurement, publication, quarrel and defunding by which scholars replace superstition with science according to ancient rites and customs.
Today marks another trip around the sun for our favorite phototrope, O'Ceallaigh. Happy birthday, pal.
