Science doesn’t stop at 5 o’clock

I am often tempted to write on a subject I am not competent to write. One such topic is – Science doesn’t stop at 5 o’clock. What I mean by that is that I am not expecting everyone to become scientists, but I believe, if explained simply, one can understand even a difficult science. If science is explained in simpler ways, the science can be more meaningful. It is a tall claim but this  is the only way to know how the world works.
“Once bold, the scientific culture has become timid. It seeks incremental advances. Rarely does it question the foundational concepts on which those incremental advances re based, especially those foundational concepts that show signs of having outlived their usefulness. The culture has become obedient. It bows to the regality of   writes Gerald H Pollack, the author of The fourth phase of water. 
In the age of extended knowledge base and sophisticated methodologies we are forgetting the usefulness of simple science; a science that is based on everyday common observations and simple logic. The questions that trouble us, we seek a complex solution. We have less faith in simple answers.  We are accepted only when our answers are complicated.
