Hermann Bondi

An observer situated in a nebula and moving with the nebula will observe the same properties of the universe as any other similarly situated observer at any time.More Hermann Bondi quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The test of science is not whether you are reasonable—there would not be much of physics if that was the case—the test is whether it works. And the great point about Newton’s theory of gravitation was that it worked, that you could actually say something about the motion of the moon without knowing very much about the constitution of the Earth.More Hermann Bondi quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
All science is full of statements where you put your best face on your ignorance, where you say: ... we know awfully little about this, but more or less irrespective of the stuff we don't know about, we can make certain useful deductions.More Hermann Bondi quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
... an opportunity to allow the bees in one's bonnet to buzz even more noisily than usual.More Hermann Bondi quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The true contrast between science and religion is that science unites the world and makes it possible for people of widely differing backgrounds to work together and to cooperate. Religion, on the other hand, by its very claim to know “The Truth” through “revelation,” is inherently divisive and a creator of separatism and hostility.More Hermann Bondi quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
