    Hello,

    Just your typical science junkie who has voyaged into a field (BSN) far from my first love, earth science and cosmology, and so must learn on my own.

    Since not formally educated on these subjects, I find that I lack the scientific terminology to render results that I seek when I "pray to the google god" to answer my questions.

    Also, would be nice to be able to discuss such matters since my social circle and family gvie me "funny" looks when I excitedly want to share information with them.

    And please forgive me as I do not have much experience with forums and do not know proper etiquette. I will try my best! Im assuming that since I by far am not an expert, that I should include sources in my responses and will always try to do so.

    Well, thats it. Let the wild rupmus begin!

    P.S. If I use terms such as "design" or "scheme" please know that I do not mean it in religious context... I am just ignorant to what other terms to use sometimes and am not trying to imply god. Thanks.

    Far to polite, you are.

    Don't worry about sources unless you think it's necessary or someone asks for them. Paraphrasing and integrating information helps you understand it and develop opinions. If someone asks for a source, you can show them your Royal Flush.

    Does your family know how concerned you are about etiquette?

    Welcome.
