Hank: 'I Love Science'

That's how it starts.

Voice: Hank Green! Whoo!

Hank: 'Can you even imagine
Way back in the past when
We thought that storms were caused by petty gods
Fightin' on top of a mountain.

And yeah I like a good story
But eventually it's gonna bore me
If it doesn't have that truth;
That incontrovertible, testable, repeatable proof

I love Science
And I love Charles Darwin
'Cause I don't think it's bold to question what you're told
If you're told that the world's a thousand years old.
There's nothing here to argue against,

And I! Love! Science!

People ask me,
Of all of the centuries,
Which I'd pick to live life in. 
For me that's pretty easy...
Right now. If you think objectively.
If you like hot running water,
And memory foam beds,
And TV shows and cell phones,
And not being dead

You fuckin' love science,
And I love Carl Sagan
'Cause I want to die remembering why
The truth is more important than winning a prize.
There's nothing here to argue against
It's a process not an ideology,
And I! Love! Science!

Woolly mammoth embryos 
Vaccines for smallpox and polio
Your TV set, the internet
Your PS4, supersonic jets.

Exoplanets, galaxies,
DNA, germ theory, relativity,
Just take a sec to think about it
How screwed we would be without it. 

(Drum solo)

I love Science
And I love Rosalind Franklin,
'Cause I want to die remembering why
The truth is more important than winning a prize.
There's nothing here to argue against.
It's a process not an ideology,
And I! Love! Science!'
