I believe in many things, but mostly I believe in science. Science has been a huge part of my life, and will continue to be as I work towards my goal to be an Equine Veterinarian. Science changes with time, it moves and grows along with the ever moving current that is time; it is not like some things that whish to remain the same forever and want time to move around them. Scientist work everyday to prove the theories they have, and work at making sure the previous facts they have still hold true. If one part of science becomes obsolete or incorrect it is willing to change. Science today is so much different than it was years ago. Today we can save lives and explore space, safer and more efficiently than ever before. Science today has taken something once thought of as being a life ending injury, like a broken leg on a horse, and have made it so we can now fix this problem with better surgical procedures and a better understanding of the structures themselves.
Science to me is the natural law, the natural order of life. Science has shown me how molecules interact, how a cell functions, how to form a bond, and so much more. Science to me makes more sense than anything, its basic reasoning and countless examples to back it leave little to question, and if there are questions, all the better. Science is meant to be questioned, or else how would we have made it this far? Science allows our mind to fully explore the ideas of how things come to be, and what natural forces are at work in the world around us. Yes there will be mistakes in science, but in science you still learn from those mistakes, rather than just mark it down as a failure. This I believe.
