Words To Live By

"Because science isn't about something being true or not true: that's a humanities graduate parody. It's about the error bar, statistical significance, it's about how reliable and valid the experiment was, it's about coming to a verdict, about a hypothesis, on the back of lots of bits of evidence." -- from Don't Dumb Me Down in a recent Grauniad (thanks to John Wilkins's Evolving Thoughts for the link).
