Schrodinger's Cat is a classic example of Paradox, in my view. In actuality, it was a Gedankenexperiment or a Thought Experiment, created by Austrian Physicist Erwin Schrodinger in 1935. Not many folks are probably aware that Schrodinger himself called that experiment “a ridiculous case.” Here’s the "Schrodinger's Cat" in Schrodinger's own words: “A cat is penned up in a steel chamber, along with the following device (which must be secured against direct interference by the cat): In a Geiger Counter, there is a tiny bit of radioactive substance, so small, that perhaps in the course of the hour one of the atoms decays, but also, with equal probability, perhaps none. If it (i.e. decay) happens, the Geiger Counter discharges and through a relay releases a hammer that shatters a small flask of Hydrogen Cyanide. If one has left this entire system to itself for an hour, one would say that the cat still lives if meanwhile no atom has (undergone) radioactive decay.” So you see, the cat's life or death truly depends on the formation of a subatomic alpha particle that triggers off the avalanche of electrons in the Geiger Counter. There is an equal probability that it may not happen, and hence the cat should remain both alive and dead per Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics. Philosophically speaking, Human Life is full of paradoxes, and we often find that the uncertainties therein bear a startling resemblance with Schrodinger's Cat experiment. The total randomness of events that shape our human lives, and determinedly control the outcome (i.e. future) can be extremely perplexing and equally thought-provoking as Schrodinger's Cat experiment....a pre-written and pre-destined Reductio ad absurdum perhaps!
– Deodatta V. Shenai-KhatkhateRate it:
Schulz told lies in German, and it's unfortunate someone can speak German in this house, but it is our responsibility to stand up against it - the generation of Schulz's parents and the generation of the Arab MKs' parents collaborated to destroy the Jews. (on European Parliament President Martin Schulz)
– Uri OrbachRate it:
Science ... warns me to be careful how I adopt a view which jumps with my preconceptions, and to require stronger evidence for such belief than for one to which I was previously hostile. My business is to teach my aspirations to conform themselves to fact, not to try and make facts harmonize with my aspirations.
– Thomas HuxleyRate it:
Science advances through tentative answers to a series of more and more subtle questions which reach deeper and deeper into the essence of natural phenomena.
– Louis PasteurRate it:
Science and religion no more contradict each other than light and electricity.
– William Hiram FoulkesRate it:
Science and technology multiply around us. To an increasing extent they dictate the languages in which we speak and think. Either we use those languages, or we remain mute.
– J. G. BallardRate it:
Science and technology revolutionize our lives, but memory, tradition and myth frame our response. Expelled from individual consciousness by the rush of change, history finds its revenge by stamping the collective unconsciousness with habits, values, expectations, dreams. The dialectic between past and future will continue to form our lives.
– Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.Rate it:
Science at best is not wisdom it is knowledge. Wisdom is knowledge tempered with judgment.
– Lord Ritchie-CalderRate it:
Science can be introduced to children well or poorly. If poorly, children can be turned away from science; they can develop a lifelong antipathy; they will be in a far worse condition than if they had never been introduced to science at all.
– Isaac AsimovRate it:
Science can destroy religion by ignoring it as well as by disproving its tenets. No one ever demonstrated, so far as I am aware, the non-existence of Zeus or Thor - but they have few followers now.
– Arthur C. ClarkeRate it:
Science can purify religion from error and superstition. Religion can purify science from idolatry and false absolutes.
– Pope John Paul II (Karol Wojtyla), James Reston, Galileo, A Life, HarperCollins, NY, 1994, p 461.Rate it:
Science cannot resolve moral conflicts, but it can help to more accurately frame the debates about those conflicts.
– John OwenRate it:
Science cannot stop while ethics catches up -- and nobody should expect scientists to do all the thinking for the country.
– Elvin StackmanRate it:
Science comits suicide when it adopts a creed.
– Thomas H. HuxleyRate it:
Science conducts us, step by step, through the whole range of creation, until we arrive, at length, at God.
– Marguerite de ValoisRate it:
Science does not know its debt to imagination. Goethe did not believe that a great naturalist could exist without this faculty.
– Ralph Waldo EmersonRate it:
Science fiction writers foresee the inevitable, and although problems and catastrophes may be inevitable, solutions are not.
– Isaac AsimovRate it:
Science has done more for the development of western civilization in one hundred years than Christianity did in eighteen hundred years.
– John BurroughsRate it:
Science has not yet taught us if madness is or is not the sublimity of the intelligence.
– Edgar Allan PoeRate it:
Science has proof without any certainty. Creationists have certainty without any proof.
– Ashley MontagueRate it:
Science has sometimes been said to be opposed to faith, and inconsistent with it. But all science, in fact, rests on a basis of faith, for it assumes the permanence and uniformity of natural laws - a thing which can never be demonstrated
