Science For the Rest of Us is a project of the Lydia Foundation for Social Engagement.

Why am I here?

Back to Basics: Freedom implies Justice; Justice requires Truth; Truth is built on Facts.

Science...is boring – but so important!  Science and Technology drive society forward and Science for the Rest of Us is here to talk about it.  We have conversations with Nerds in the Know and explore the science behind our lives.

 

Science shouldn’t be the last word in our civic discourse – it should be the first.  We can all strive to understand the basic facts of each issue, and then apply our social, ethical and religious values to plot a course forward -- together.

 

Science For the Rest of Us exists because it's much more fun to learn than it is to fight.  After all, where is the time to hate when there is so little time to love?

 

My mother's advice: Read a book; Write a letter; Go play outside.
