Science is finally catching up with poetry

Postby Michael C. Page » 04 Jan 2016, 13:22

Well, after about 150 years or so of denying, mocking and scoffing, Science finally catches up with poetry and story: http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-35179269

Kind makes you wonder why we need them in the first place. :whistle:

But the good news is when we read such lines in our poetry and lore such as:

"...from spain..."

or

"...the remnant of Troia..."

and many many others, we can smile whimsically that the great and infallible scientific institution is beginning to come round. ....of course there is not much money in this so they will probably..... oh never mind. :roll: :duck: :-)

Cheers anyway :gulp:

Cool! And there are other ways too, where you can find science finally catching up with poetry. For example my master. I wrote about Excalibur in it's tradition from the first written sources we have up to the Excalibur today, we all know from movies, musicals, books and games. :grin:
