“It doesn’t create jobs when you go after scientists, and you try to offer your own alternative theories of how things work and engage in litigation around stuff that isn’t political,”
“It has to do with what’s true. It has to do with facts. You don’t argue with facts.
Actually, science consists entirely of theories. In 1953, my father studied quantum mechanics at Cornell under Freeman Dyson. Dyson taught that quantum mechanics is settled science and well understood.
Then in 1986, my father attended a discussion about quantum mechanics at the University of Adelaide, when Freeman Dyson said “nobody really understands quantum mechanics.“
My father responded with “that isn’t what you taught us at Cornell“
Freeman Dyson responded with “I am older and wiser now.”
If people didn’t argue over scientific theories, we would still be living in dark caves – like where Obama’s intellect resides.
