Do You Believe In Science?

| 9 Comments

And then this happened:

And here are the lyrics:
Do you believe in science in a young girl’s mind
Testing results to verify what she finds
And it’s science it makes you happy and cheery
From hypothesis to demonstrable theory.
I’ll tell you about the science it’ll take some proof
The neverending search for objective truth

If you believe in science, don’t bother to guess
If it’s observed in a lab, if it passes the test
Then do it again so the results are reliable
As long as what your looking at is falsifiable
You won’t be convincing if your data’s too scant
So outline your plan, apply for a grant.

If you believe in science come along with me
We test what we know and we know what we see
Farewell now, to every phantom and wraith
And every idea based only on faith
We’ll look great in our white lab coats
And I’ll follow you around and keep careful notes.

Yeah, do you believe in science
Yeah believe in the science that’s what we should do
And we’ll send it out there for peer review
Believe in the science that can find the truth
Ohhh, talkin’ ’bout science
Do you believe in science

  1. Music. We believe in music!

  2. I really like this one. If you wanted to talk about the studio process at all, Steve, I wouldn’t mind a bit.

    Oh, that could be fun. I’ll give it some thought.

  4. This is fucking brilliant.

    Put the lyrics in the YouTube description!

    Thank you! Will do.

  6. I don’t have to believe in a hammer to pound nails with it.

  7. Yes, you do paintedjaguar. If you did not believe in the hammer and how it works, you would never pick it up to pound any nails.

  8. It’s not that I believe in science; rather I am convinced by science. That expresses the difference between science and religion.

  9. I played this for my 12-year-old daughter, the future underwater archaeologist (or astrobiologist, the jury is still out).

    She loved it. ^_^
