The Triumph of Science

by Jordan Henderson

Two weeks to flatten the curve will have to come to an end one year or another, and now, as certain Covid policies are loosening, some people worry that we may be failing to follow the Science. I want to reassure the followers of Science that, temporary setbacks notwithstanding, Science has done remarkably well. Two years of lockdowns, mandatory masks, mandatory vaccines, and all of this at a global scale, is no small feat. It is an impressive accomplishment deserving of commemoration.

I have painted two pictures of Science. I will also share two quotes from the previous two centuries. These two quotes and the past two years should provide ample context for the paintings.

“We are on the Eve of a new Reformation and if I have a wish to live thirty years, it is that I may see the foot of Science on the necks of her Enemies”. – Written in 1859 by T.H Huxley (Famous naturalist and grandfather of Aldous Huxley)

“In every age the men who want us under their thumb, if they have any sense, will put forward the particular pretension which the hopes and fears of that age render most potent. They ‘cash in.’ It has been magic, it has been Christianity. Now it will certainly be science”. – Written in 1958 by C.S Lewis

  1. The only thing I would take issue with is the depiction of a woman doing the beheading. Bill Gates, Klaus Schwab and most of the ringleaders directing this circus are men. Curious to know what made you decide to use women inflicting violence.
