Ah So-o-o-o Desu ka?

Gad, I admire John Hawks!
The reason, at least in my mind, is that science is never unanimous. Consensus itself is a meaningless concept in science. Even a crank can be right, if his predictions come true. Science depends on the concept of testability, which in my mind makes it the most special system of knowledge ever devised. It is good that science is conservative, and it is good that it is slow, because both these things contribute to claims being tested properly.
Read the whole thing -- not to be ashamed for assuming so much too soon. but to learn how to have true patience.
If only I could. Sigh.
