Techie Corner – 2015 – Post #9 – The Absolutes in Science

What are the absolutes in science?

My two cents, but please share yours:

1. There is no such thing as “settled” science. Nothing is known with 100% certainty, and any law can be upended by a near-future scientific discovery.

2. Even the slightest pre-experiment bias renders the experiment’s results useless, unfit for decision-making.

3. Censorship of opposing viewpoints will never lead to scientific truths.

  1. I was thinking how I would have to explain how I’m not a scientist…and then explain 1, 2, and 3, exactly as you did. I totally agree, and I love the idea that there is so much we don’t know.

    • Thank you so much, D. Wallace. Cheers, Ashley

  2. Absolutely agree. Science is relative to the next finding.
