A Redoubt of Learning Stands Firm


This wonderful picture comes from the Royal Society, the oldest scientific body in the world. As posted in the NY Times, the society forever remains A Redoubt of Learning Stands Firm, something to be cherished in a world fraught with intolerance, ignorance and hostility, in many ways, to science, the discipline best suited to learning how reality actually works.




The other notion one gets from reading the NY Times piece, and amplified when visiting the Royal Society website, is the society's deep connect to art, creativity and education from the humanist perspective, a characteristic all to rare in today's age of instant gratification being not fast enough.
