Truth is true whether or not you believe in it

Yesterday, a Facebook friend of mind posted a picture of his new T-shirt, which had this quote from Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson on it. To which I replied:

    You are so right!
    The “truth” in science is constantly changing.
    Compare a 1960’s Physics textbook ( my period of formal education) to one used today.
    And, it’s even more complicated than that. There are things in quantum mechanics that are both “true” and untrue/opposite, at the same moment. They are one thing when you are looking at them, and another when you are not.
    Give me the great Truth of God, which is eternal.

      Yes. “The more we learn, the less we know” is a maxim that could apply to physics. Scientists ought to be very humble when it comes to these questions. DeGrasse Tyson isn’t.

    How “true”! 🙂
