“In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.”

—Aristotle, On the Parts of Animals

My name is Monica Bennett, and I have a Ph.D. in physics from Vanderbilt University and an indelible sense of wonder about most (OK, not all, roaches excluded) things in our universe, large and small. I think we benefit from considering nature and human life using multiple tools, of which science is an incredibly important and useful one. I believe in objective truth and miracles. I am comfortable with both disagreeing with Aristotle on multiple issues and appreciating/appropriating his words for my title.
