"Is there anything science should not try to explain? Science is knowledge and knowledge is power - power to do good or evil. Sometimes ignorance is bliss."
"The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination."Paul Davies on Albert Einstein
"Information is not knowledge."Paul Davies on Albert Einstein
"A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots."Paul Davies on Marcus Garvey
"Knowledge of what is does not open the door directly to what should be."Paul Davies on Albert Einstein
"Ignorance is the curse of God knowledge is the wing wherewith we fly to heaven."Paul Davies on William Shakespeare
"The way life manages information involves a logical structure that differs fundamentally from mere complex chemistry. Therefore chemistry alone will not explain life's origin, any more than a study of silicon, copper and plastic will explain how a computer can execute a program."
"Perhaps the best motivation for going to Mars is political. It is obvious that no single nation currently has either the will or the resources to do it alone, but a consortium of nations and space agencies could achieve it within 20 years."
"Should we find a second form of life right here on our doorstep, we could be confident that life is a truly cosmic phenomenon. If so, there may well be sentient beings somewhere in the galaxy wondering, as do we, if they are not alone in the universe."
"Man-made computers are limited in their performance by finite processing speed and memory. So, too, the cosmic computer is limited in power by its age and the finite speed of light."
"Science, we are repeatedly told, is the most reliable form of knowledge about the world because it is based on testable hypotheses. Religion, by contrast, is based on faith. The term 'doubting Thomas' well illustrates the difference."
