Scientific inquiry shouldn`t stop just because a reasonable explanation has apparently been found.

Neil deGrasse Tyson

A theory in science is a logical creation. It reflects the most accurate experimental observations and the best understanding of how the world works. Yet a scientific theory doesn’t necessarily represent absolute truth. It can only capture the state of our knowledge so far. There’s every chance that a new piece of evidence will come to light that disproves the theory, and sends the theoreticians back to the drawing board.

Paul Parsons

Human knowledge is doubling every ten years. In the past decade, more scientific knowledge has been created than in all of human history.

Michio Kaku

The history of science is riddled with abject failures of scientific objectivity. But that is just the point-these have been failures of science, discovered and corrected by-what, religion? No, by good science.

Sam Harris

Science for me is very close to art. Scientific discovery is an irrational act. It’s an intuition which turns out to be reality at the end of it - and I see no difference between a scientist developing a marvellous discovery and an artist making a painting.

Carlo Rubbia

I have never seen the slightest scientific proof of the religious theories of heaven and hell, of future life for individuals, or of a personal God.

Thomas Edison

A scientific man ought to have no wishes, no affections - a mere heart of stone.

Charles Darwin

I would rather discover one scientific fact than become King of Persia.

Democritus

No nation, no religion, no economic system, no body of knowledge, is likely to have all the answers for our survival. There must be many social systems that would work far better than any now in existence. In the scientific tradition, our task is to find them.

Carl Sagan

God is an ever receding pocket of scientific ignorance.

Neil deGrasse Tyson

Certainly I see the scientific view of the world as incompatible with religion, but that is not what is interesting about it. It is also incompatible with magic, but that also is not worth stressing. What is interesting about the scientific world view is that it is true, inspiring, remarkable and that it unites a whole lot of phenomena under a single heading.

Richard Dawkins

A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die.

Max Planck

Nearly all scientific research leads nowhere - or, if it does lead somewhere, not in the direction it started off.

Peter Medawar

Scientific knowledge is an enabling power to do either good or bad - but it does not carry instructions on how to use it.

Richard Feynman

The existing scientific concepts cover always only a very limited part of reality, and the other part that has not yet been understood is infinite.

Werner Heisenberg
