The new century is dubbed as an informationized era with “knowledge big bang” suggesting that the ability and capability of our human being is unprecedented. However, the fact is not that optimistic. The vanished Flight 370 en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing tells us that we are still helpless under some devastating conditions that beyond our abilities to be dealt with. Even science is marching forward, whereas the real ratio between the science advancement to trouble-solving ability is reduced dramatically compared to our ancestors. One bad manner that we human being cannot discard is finding excuses when facing unsolvable troubles. In fact, do we really need excuses for everything? One thing needing note is that science is science, and ability is ability. The more you know, the more you will find hard to deal with.
