The Dilbert Blog: Penn and Teller

The Dilbert Blog: Penn and Teller

I don't usually agree with Scott Adams' views on science, so I was quite surprised to read this blog entry.

I was quite impressed that despite the fact that he clings to some rather silly notions, he does subscribe to the fundamental governing principle of science: It is impossible to prove anything, only to disprove.

"The aim of science is not to open the door to everlasting wisdom, but rather to close the door on everlasting error."
