He probably was, but that doesn't change the fact that it's still funny out of context.

Well, to be fair, Physics is basically just Math.

Biology is really Chemistry
Chemistry is really Physics (sup thermodynamics)
Physics is really Math.

Now, if I could get over the whole dissecting live animals thing, I might be able to have that Chemistry degree I set out for eleven years ago.

Reductionism in philosophy describes a number of related, contentious theories that hold, very roughly, that the nature of complex things can always be reduced to (explained by) simpler or more fundamental things. This is said of objects, phenomena, explanations, theories, and meanings. In short, it is philosophical materialism taken to its logical consequences.

Roughly this means that physics is based on mathematics, chemistry is based on physics, biology is based on chemistry, psychology and sociology are based on biology. The first of these are commonly accepted but the last step is very controversial and therefore the frontier of reductionism: evolutionary -psychology and -sociology vs. those who claim people have a soul or another quality that separates them from the material world. Reductionists believe that the behavioral-sciences should become a genuine scientific discipline by being based on genetic biology.

A very typical reductionistic book is 'The Selfish Gene' by Richard Dawkins. It argues that because genes are the fundamental elements of life, all life and all natural behavior can best be understood by studying genetic mechanisms. This way all life is best regarded as temporary accommodation and a reproduction device for the genes.

Sort of on topic here, it is because of exactly this that everyone whines and complains that all MMORPG quests are stupid FedEx or kill missions. When in fact they arent that simple, people are just dumbing them down.

math is my hardest subject!

I can understand it but it takes me ages to do problems. It takes me an hour to do what is supposed to be a 10 minute assignment. It really causes me to freak out on tests because they're timed. :(
