man of science

london is great. all over the place are round blue signs like this one which say who once lived where.
this one is my favourite: Thomas Young, Man of Science.

Man of sciences sounds a very old fashioned title. i imagine at the time it was completely futuristic. but now is just sounds strange.
i’m a man of science. i’m made of molecules and atoms and all those tiny things they tell you about in school.
man of science was probably an alternative to ‘man of god’ ie you can’t be a techno-bod and a person of faith. they don’t have to be exclusive though. God invented a fantastic world with physical constants and structures which we can start to understand.
i’m a man of science and i’m a christian. i’m not great at either. but i try.
