Roller's Philosophical Friday: Science

Dearest Muleteers, FH and I have been discussing the meaning of life and big scientific advances - The Higgs Boson, Evolutionary Theory.... oh and the superiority of mules...Mule Cognition, Mule Behaviour and Mule Problem Solving... blah, blah, blah!  Oh well guess they are my buddies and I am an honorary long ear. 

FH is a scientist (she specialises in long ears!) but rather than having the answers she is always going on about more questions, some days I can't figure out what she's on about!

It would appear that there is never an 'answer' just lots more questions... but science takes us closer to the answer than just having blind confidence.... we think a very important man can shed a little light!

Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge: it is those who know little, and not those who know much, who so positively assert that this or that problem will never be solved by science.
Charles Darwin

Well Muleteers I'm off to try out some experiments of my own, I will be testing the theory of problem solving in ponies.... I know I can unlatch the feed room door, I must just apply myself :-)



  1. When you solve the problem of how to get my human to let me have access to ALL the lovely long lushious yummy green stuff in my field let me know. I would pay good hay for the answer to this.

  2. Hello Roller, what an interesting subject. I love the inquisitive mind and can't wait to hear more about your experiments!. Thank you for this piece of wisdom. Hugging you all ♥
