Just a quick reblog for anyone who still has doubts about evolution. A small recommendation.

Questions about Science

I’ve opened up the Questions page for anyone who wants anything answered.

 

It’s an open floor for people to ask questions about Science that I can try to answer (or get someone else to!).

I’m not going to be answering questions straight away as I continue to update the Life series and other basics, but I will start soon. So it would be nice to get the question ball rolling!

Drink Some Water!

Lets tie up this dieting bit with some liquid knowledge:

There was some stuff I heard a couple of years ago about a water diet and ‘water weight’.

Firstly, yes we are meant to (more…)

Eat Your Breakfast!

The last post talked about how proteins and fats are sometimes used as energy instead of carbohydrates, and I might have mentioned water a couple of times as well. So I’m going to take this opportunity to talk about some dieting stuff! (more…)

Life: What We’re Made of Part 2 (The Molecules)

I could have gone on to bigger things after the cell, but I thought it would be worth covering this bit first. I mentioned that the cells control molecules which in turn control atoms. I want to quickly explain what those molecules are. (more…)

Life: What We’re Made of Part 1 (The Cell)

This bit has taken a lot of doing so I’ve decided to split it up over a few posts.

I’ve said so far that the world is made of atoms (and I expect to say at some point what atoms are made of) as are all things living. Yet this only explains so much. Atoms are nice as building blocks, but they don’t just randomly create life, they have to be expertly controlled. So to make life, atoms need to be controlled and this role is filled by much bigger molecules. (more…)

A Small Comment About the Last Post and Empty Space

I wanted to add a little bit more to the last post, but it was already getting quite long and I thought it would be best to publish this seperately.

Atoms are vitally important, but trying to explain what they are is not always the most fascinating of tasks. However one thing about them really does interest me. (more…)

Life: The World is Made of Lego Bricks

These first few posts are going to be pretty factual just so I can get some of the basic principles out of the way. A lot of these posts might be turned into pages when I start to cover more niché topics!

This first concept is a bit abstract, but important: I’m going to explain what atoms are and how they make up our world on a really tiny scale, using Lego as an example. (more…)

What is Life?

I’ve decided the best place to start this blog on explaining science, is to do a series of posts on something that’s a important to everyone, and is

probably one of the most important aspects of science, I’m going to base the next few posts on Life.

The series will most likely include:

– Some stuff on cells and what we are all made of.

– DNA and the ‘code of life’ (or how we create life).

– This might be controversial to some people but I think it’s pretty important: evolution.

– Thoughts on consciousness and various theories on how we think and the existence of free will.

– As an afterthought I could do a small exploration into the universe and how it supports life, as well as whether there is life outside of this planet (or solar system).

If anyone at any point comes up with other suggestions feel free to comment on the blog and I’ll see if I can get to it!

MyBlog – or whats this about?

Hello to everyone at wordpress and all future readers! This is my official first post so I’m going to explain what this blog is about.

This is my science blog where I want to explain (or define) some of the areas of science that I find interesting.

I’ve found that a lot of people find it difficult to understand science from the outset so I’m going to try and do this in as clear and accessible a way as I can.   Hopefully as I gain subscribers we can build a community where everyone will throw out the questions they want answered or the topics they want debated.

So I want to make this fun and get everyone involved…

Watch this space!!!
