To everyone below,

Being an engineer or scientist doesn't mean you don't understand law or understand the impacts of a decision. But it does mean that we better understand what it takes to make better conditions for the people. An engineer would better understand the mechanical and industrial needs of a community, a scientist would be better at devising new options for bettering a community.

He's not saying that law and business majors should be kicked out of politics, but rather that our leadership should be more diverse in their professions. Ex, a civil engineer could be better for a position that oversees the development of land for a city, while still understanding the business needs for such operations. Or a mechanical engineer for the position that oversees public transportation. Of course Law majors should still make laws, but there are areas where other professions would be better suited.

I may be wrong, but that's just the way I see it.

Once an engineer or scientist has been in his profession long enough to understand the communities' needs, he probably won't want to switch careers. Years of connections and social standings as well as learning an entriely different lifestyle can be too much of a shock to most.

I'd ******* love to have some school teachers in our government, though.

Every thumb is a finger, but not every finger is a thumb.
A thumb has the same use as the other fingers, but placed differently for the sake of efficiency.

The people of whom deducted such theories were not scientists. More like philosophers, really. Anyway, some facts aren't debatable anymore; such as whether evolution occurred. It most definitely did... but some people still disagree.

Science has reached a point of which if we don't know what something is or what something does, we don't jump to a conclusion. We hypothesise until concrete proof is found.
#98 to #95 - terracount (09/05/2012) [-]
Of course people jump to conclusions, just look at Hawking's assertions on black holes only a few years ago. Look at the M-Theory! As far as evolution goes, it depends on what you consider evolving. Viruses mutate all the time, but is that evolution? Viruses aren't considered alive so maybe not. Nobody has actually SEEN birds slowly change the shapes of their beaks or monkeys slowly transform into sub-humans. Evolution is a good guess at what happened, don't get me wrong, however, it's still erroneous to think of it as a "fact".
User avatar #104 to #98 - Mattyowl (09/05/2012) [-]
Yeah, a lot of it is hit and miss. That is science in a nutshell.

For me, the evolutionary theory is indisputable. Fossils and such show the change in animal bone structure over many, many millennia to adapt to their ever-changing surroundings and predators.

Evolution is still seen as a theory. Indeed, it is a theory, but the most logical one and one that has masses of proof behind it.
User avatar #118 to #104 - theholum (09/05/2012) [-]
Indeed. It's odd how many people dismiss evolution simply becasue they don't know what meaning of the word 'thoery' they use.

false. a lot of science is still just theories.
User avatar #121 to #100 - Chuckaholic (09/05/2012) [-]
The word theory has a different meaning in day to day life than it has in science. A theory in day to day life is just an idea, a thought, without research. In science that's a hypothesis. A scientific theory has much research gone into it and generally isn't called fact in case someone finds a bombshell that shatters the theory completely. However these "theories" have so much evidence that 90% of the time they could be considered a fact anyway.
User avatar #132 to #121 - usernameluisdjlols (09/05/2012) [-]
that's why my bio teacher gives us f's ever tim we say something's a theory in science when we they mean hypothesis, spot on mate

Not knowing about it is sort of included in that statement.

There is something which is correct in every situation, whether you believe it to be this thing, or that thing. There has to be at least one.

And yeah yeah, I know, paradoxes.
Well paradoxes do have answers, It's possible we just don't know them yet, or they're due to a flaw in mathematics.
Look at Zeno's, that had an answer.

Its quite simple to explain, Engineers and Scientists solve problems.
Business men and Lawyers cause the problems then leave them for someone else to deal with.

**JulesVerne rolled a random image posted in comment #8 at Lambo? ** A business man who opens a solar factory is creating a problem? A lawyer that works for the people who got betrayed in the financial crisis are creating a problem? Wallstreet employed the best mathematics mayors straight from university to create new financial products, later called weapons of mass destruction. Most of the people here are generalizing, you are all being retarded idiots and i hope you never have children.
User avatar #350 to #280 - ilovehitler (09/05/2012) [-]
Yes, he gives people more reasons to argue
Yes, as they often will have to work for those who are lying about being betrayed, and have to do their best to help them.
I can't even begin to understand what you're trying to say after that.

Also, you call us generalizers, then proceed to call us all retarded idiots. Hypocrite.
User avatar #289 to #280 - odonnell (09/05/2012) [-]
Yes. Creating a Solar factory is giving people things to argue about eg the efficiency compared to nuclear.

Lawyers don't help people in financial betrayal, they use the problem to get money for themselves and then cause more problems for the person with the problem in the first place.

I don't know what the rest of you're comment is about, but I think i disagree with that as well.

Its very important actually. Because a lawmaker cannot solve problems, he is not educated to solve anything.

Ask a lawman to prevent car accidents and he'll make rules, and set speedlimits that are enforced by arbitrary system and fines.
Ask an engineer to prevent cart accidents and he'll get to work on a car that cannot have an accident.

In an interview on the science channel, he said that when he discovered he was a meme, he was a little creeped out by it.  But now he enjoys seeing people's reactions when he puts up his hands and says &quot;Watch out, we got a badass over here.&quot;   
Cool scientist is cool.

Scientists aren't politicians purely because they are too smart for it.
