Electron Acts Like a Perfect Sphere

It's really amazing how each little step of scientific discovery or breakthrough advances our foundation of knowledge about the universe. You apply these little steps to the history of mankind and realize just how far we've come in spite of massive resistance and persecution along the way from religious zealots and war and conflict. We're still just ankle-deep in the ocean of knowledge of the cosmos but our depth of understanding has far surpassed that which can be understood from any "holy" book. It is our duty as humans to continue to advance the frontiers of knowledge at all costs. This is what drives economies, this is what makes the human experience that much more rich, this is what will ultimately be the eventual downfall of organized religions in the long run. Sane, sound, scientific, factual explanations for who we are, how we got here and the limits of where we can go... our place in the cosmos.
