  •  Yes, science should be boring (1+ / 0-)

    And we should teach about science through rote memorization.  This couldn't possibly be why our students can't stand math and science now.  

    Taking passion out of science is exactly why we have a crisis in this country.  

    There have been great, passionate discussions about nearly every area of science.  The best scientists are extremely passionate about their theories.  They battle with each other over the most minute details, and they are the most interesting speakers.  

    Take passion out of science?  No thanks.

      Are you sure you're actually a scientist?

      The beginner's classroom is the place to teach the genuine joy of discovery, not the stale argumentation that passes for debate nowadays -- even so-called "scientific" debate in the media.

      And you can't even tell the difference between dispassionate and boring?  Hmm.  Do you think disinterested also means bored?

      Ideology is when you have the answers before you know the questions.
      It is what grows into empty spaces where intelligence has died.
