Re: Scientific Controversy

Nobody asked but …

There is absolutely no standard required for a definition of science.  Anyone can claim any scientific thing.  Some of the most amazing hoodwinking has over the centuries been offered as science.  Remember that snake oil salesmen of the 19th century, exploiting the old west, often professed to be men of science.  Both liars and truth-tellers can assert something that seems true.  Let the believer beware.  To paraphrase Skyler, when terms like “proven” or “settled” are used, the conversation has left the realm of science and entered the realm of the confidence game.
