Science Myths; Do You Believe In Folk Tales Or Research And Experiments? admin 2021-07-16 Science Myths Science is based on state reasons and theories based on facts through experiments, research and other proofs. Science aims to dismiss all the misconceptions and beliefs of people so that they have a better understanding of the surrounding that they live in and the whole universe. Science has answers for almost everything. But, unfortunately, prolonged misconceptions turn into myths, and it takes a lot of time to discard them. What is a myth? Myth is a false belief that has been widespread by telling old traditional stories. These usually involve supernatural powers and events. These are not based on facts. In science, a myth is often seen when two or more parties argue because one is not ready to accept the science factors because they believe in the myth and stories related to it and vice versa. Myths arise because they are mostly related to the history and beliefs of old and older adults, and their stories keep revolving and spreading everywhere. These folk tales have been passed on from generation to generation, and so they have a strong impact and hold in people’s mind. But development in science has helped to discard and dismiss these myths at once. This has been possible with the invention of great science equipment and gadgets to carry out meaningful research programmes that help derive proof from several instances. Otherwise, myths would always be a barrier between people and reality. Science is sometimes itself no less than a miracle and magic, but it always comes with facts. How is science beneficial for us? The answer to this question is never-ending, and that is how many benefits science provides us with, but if one has to state few pointers – Evolution and classification – science has helped us to understand life on earth better. It tells us about how life begins on earth and how much have we evolved to date. It has helped us differentiate between different organisms and understand their interdependency and how they relate to each other. Human body – science has helped us to discover and understand the functioning of our own body. It helped us to identify the different organs and organ system. Diseases – the understanding of the human body helped identify any strange activity in the functioning of the organ system and eliminate its cause. Hence, saving us from diseases and curing injuries. Gadgets and future – science helped us develop gadgets and appliances that help us connect with the world. The progress in science and research with Artificial intelligence is a glimpse of the bright future that science holds for us by reducing human labour and assigning bots. Science has made the world a smaller place to live in, where everyone can connect with anyone sitting in another city, state, country, continent or at another pole.
