Over at io9, they have a list of 10 scientific ideas that scientists wish you would stop misusing. Real scientists were asked which words and terms bugged them the most. I agree with them all, especially the one concerning what a scientific theory is. The 10 ideas are:
- Quantum uncertainty and quantum weirdness
- Learned vs. Innate
- Statistically significant
- Survival of the fittest
- Geologic timescales
I have proof that a statistically significant natural theory of organic quantum uncertainty and learned vs. innate quantum weirdness will result in the survival of the fittest gene during geologic timescales. Onwards!
