One thought on “No Gospel Truth in Science”

  1. The problem with the narrative of the meme is that the public more often hears (sees) the first and then nothing thereafter. This is further exacerbated by the inability for many (if not most) studies not to be reproduced (though it’s gotten slightly better over the past decade). Novel studies receive grants; peer-review studies—not so much. Novel studies get published; peer-reviewed rebuttal—not so much.

    On the other hand, this is sometimes true:
    – Eat X because it’s good for you
    – Don’t eat X; it’s bad for you for reason A
    – Eat X because benefit Q outweighs reason A
    – Don’t eat X… ad infinitum…
