    Re: Scientific Quotes of the Day

    I saw this scientific quote in regards to cancer and I found it again:

    Cancer cells come pre-programmed to execute a well-defined cascade of changes, seemingly designed to facilitate both their enhanced survival and their dissemination through the bloodstream. There is even an air of conspiracy in the way that tumors use chemical signals to create cancer-friendly niches in remote organs.:
    - Paul Davies

    Here's my favorite Thomas Edison quote (about the lightbulb):

    “I have not failed 10,000 times. I have not failed once. I have succeeded in proving that those 10,000 ways will not work. When I have eliminated the ways that will not work, I will find the way that will work.”

    Re: Scientific Quotes of the Day

    There is scarcely any part of science or any thing in nature, which those impostors and blasphemers of science, called priests, as well as Christians and J E Ws, have not, at some time or other, perverted, or sought to pervert to the purpose of superstition.

    Here's one I remember from Star Trek, which relates to science (if you let it marinate in your brain):

    "The needs of the many outweigh ... the needs of the few... Or the one."
    --- Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

    I got science quote for you.

    "If I don't see it, I don't believe it." - My Grams

    She didn't believe in no science unless she could see it. She always science is like God, "If he's out there great, I ain't seen him and he ain't none my paryers". She said the same thing about science. She often called it "voodoo".

    The scientist is not a person who gives the right answers, he's one who asks the right questions. ~Claude Lévi-Strauss, Le Cru et le cuit, 1964
