There is so much to say about the many endeavors by professional scientists to explain to us the world. The list is long: Carl Sagan, Harald Lesch, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Sabine Hossenfelder, Michio Kaku, and I even saw Roger Penrose and Steven Hawking on tv. The list is - of course - considerably longer than that. Even the subject isn't actually new:
Albert Einstein: What I most admire about your art, is your universality. You don't say a word, yet the world understands you!
Charles Chaplin: True. But your glory is even greater! The whole world admires you, even though they don't understand a word of what you say.
You've probably heard about this quotation (## \sim## 1932), however, it cannot be verified. Nevertheless, it brings us directly to the matter. For one, the world of communication has changed dramatically ever since, and secondly, nobody apparently cares about whether something can be verified. But even this isn't new. Someone to whom I told an anecdote about a professor we both knew replied:
Brooks Ferrebee: I don't think this story is true. Its charm is that it could be true.
That was about forty years ago. There is so much to say about ...
Erich Kästner: Es gibt nichts Gutes, außer man tut es. 1950.
(There is nothing good unless you do it.)
... so I decided to add my two cents to a discussion that frequently turns up on physicsforums.com whenever someone read or watched, better: consumed an explanation of a phenomenon - usually from astrophysics or quantum mechanics, occasionally mathematics - given by someone who is a reputable and respected scientist who tries honestly to share their knowledge with us all.
