    Default Favourite branch of science?

    What's your favourite branch of science?

    I love Biology. I honestly read about birds, invertebrates, and even plants just for fun.

    Particle physics is awesome,
    As are novel genetic diseases (such as FOP)

    but I study nanotechnology, which is also cool.

    Astronomy for fun and economics for practicality.

    Well seeing that science is generally the study of things and how they work, and anything with "ology" at the end means it's the study of that thing and how it works, yes

    I've never been that into Physics. Maybe it's because I suck at/hate math :/

    Biology interests me. Specifically genetics.

    Above the lakes, above the vales,
    The mountains and the woods, the clouds, the seas,
    Beyond the sun, beyond the ether,
    Beyond the confines of the starry spheres,
    My soul, you move with ease

    At school I'm doing Biology. I'd love it if it wasn't just memory work for learning. If it wasn't like that I suppose I'd have more of an interest in Biology. But other than that I like Physics the most, particularly quantum physics

    Murderology and murderonomy.

    Unlike physics and chemistry, biology seems to have a really long wait before you can go from just memorizing isolated topics to piecing together the puzzle on your own and asking your own questions/learning for yourself. I think this is partly because of the broadness of the subject as a whole. Some aspects of biology are really fascinating (virology and genetics for example) but they require a lot of ground work before you can get to grips with them on any interesting level.

    I have to disagree. I find every step of the way fascinating. From the endocrine system to the behavior of owls to the discovery of new sea creatures, I love it all! I have this crazy dream of being one of the selections of an elite bunch of biologists chosen to fly to a newly discovered earth-like planet to study the life there - But that'll never happen :P

    As for Chemistry and Physics, I can't seem to stay awake during chem class, and I was never really into physics.

    But what I love about this thread is that almost everybody has chosen something different. All different strokes!
