The average person can only marvel at their existence and hope and pray they do not become victim of their wrath. While more money is invested for prevention and education, more continues to be lost as each disaster occurs. For those who have been fortunate enough to live and tell their tale of personal experience, they offer more insight even researchers find hard to comprehend. While thousands have lost their lives in the past, things seem to have improved as far as raising awareness of their capabilities. Will we truly understand their purpose or why they occur beyond what we know scientifically?
In the course of time, physics as a science underwent great changes. From a subdivision of philosophy it gradually turned into an applied science and then, in the 20th century, into an extremely complicated, greatly specialized and somewhat closed science. For the majority of this time physics has been rather ambiguously limited, describing the movements of celestial bodies and other material objects that stand behind the construction of many mechanisms and so on. To be a physicist was to know something about all these fields. But in the 20th century and, especially, after the works of Albert Einstein, everything changed. Physics split into a number of very narrow and very specialized fields, sometimes with little connection between each other. The majority of scientists work in one and the same field their entire lives.
Is it fair to punish a minor under the laws designed for adults? The issue of morals makes answering this question more difficult, as people are taught that the same rules for adults cannot be applied to children. The differences in their attitudes and psyche are too big to overlook. Minors’ psyche is less stable by default, and they are easily influenced by those with stronger personalities. The leaders of juvenile gangs fall into this category, so it is only logical that they can manipulate those who are struggling to find their place in the world, while suffering under the onslaught of hormones triggered by puberty. This unstable psychological condition is the main reason that explains why minors are perceived as incapable of taking the blame for their actions. However, teenage angst can hardly be seen as an excuse to commit a serious crime. This is not a matter of not seeing the right from wrong. There are laws that must be complied with, and not doing so is wrong by default. One’s existential crisis is not a good enough reason to use as an excuse for breaking the law.
