impactmania’s Mountain [is] Life – Valbruna

From the lines above it is possible to guess the beauty of my native mountains, but also the challenges that you may have to face. In fact, a small mountain village like Valbruna, which experiences severe winter conditions, offers almost nil opportunities to ambitious young people, who are forced to migrate in order to pursue their dreams. Despite this, the immeasurable beauty of its mountains — together with the sense of peace, tranquillity and freedom cradling the inhabitants of the Valcanale — exerts a gentle appeal to one's native and natural place. A pull, attractive force that could be confused with gravity, if only the mountains were immensely more massive.

Paola and Mauro Ferrari: Let Serendipity Open up Avenues for New Common Ventures

Hopefully by now we are agreed that certainties and probabilities are two different things. Now, let's agree, I beg you, that the opinion of a scientist is not necessarily science, itself. Only because a statement has been made by someone who works in a scientific sector, it does not make it "science". To be science, it must be based on data, it must be capable of accurate predictions, and it must have been verified in analogous circumstances. Otherwise, it is just a personal opinion.
