After a hiatus, a propos ways of knowing.

October 3, 2009

Been pondering and catching up, several are mad at me for my unwavering service to the true meaning of words: case in point “prediction”, but cranky old scientists argue: it is just semantics!! to what I answer: precisely!! old crank, the rest is commentary. Been reading all the excitement about the “human”: Ardi,  well at least, hominin, who has been the center of gravity, or levity, and mistery for 14 years. Most blogs and publications, sad to witness spew so much vitriol regarding the publications, 11 in science, a TV show this sunday and front pages in most of the world. Are scientists a nasty subset or are we all the same?
