Uncharted waters

One of the things I find the most fascinating is thinking about just how much we don’t know. Today’s theme, water:

  1. There may be three times as much water below the surface of the earth than in the oceans. But it’s conjecture and not easily explored.
  2. The Yucatan peninsula has 215 miles (345 km) of connected underwater caves.
  3. Earthquakes as far as Japan and Mexico create waves in Devils Hole, a Nevada cave. It’s unknown how deep and far Devil’s hole goes and how it’s connected to these distant waters.

Whenever it’s tempting to embrace scientism, take a step back and admire just how much we don’t know and likely never will.
