Why start a science blog?
There are quite a few science blogs out there already, and many that already deal with geological topics.
But I have always liked to write and I hope that my posts can act as a source of inspiration and debate within the science community that I am part of, and among those who are just generally interested in geology and the evolution of life on Earth.
Unfortunately, science and evolution are not as accepted as most of us working within Earth Sciences think. E.g. in 2009 half of the British population did not believe in Darwin’s theory of evolution. More than one fifth of the population preferred creationism or intelligent design, but most people were just confused and did not really see the point in believing in something that they could not understand.
This shows that there is a need for us who work with evolution and the history of the Earth to share our knowledge. Spread the word…
