Learning Community about Science & Mystery

Tension exists between science and mystery.
Science, aided by computers, aims to explore and understand the unknown. But the work is always incomplete. Man often employs primal mythology to complete the understanding.

First, we'll look to the past to see where science and religion have struggled to understand the world. We'll explore how technology has lead to the development of the computer, a kind of universal machine. Then we'll consider mysteries of our times such as Bigfoot, Psychic Powers, and Angels. We'll conduct research through literature, finish our own experiments with appropriate data analysis, and present our packaged results in an online format. Finally, we will use our experience in the learning community to predict our future.
