Science is not about certainty

Panda's Thumb - Tue, 2014-09-16 07:36
That is the title of an interesting article in The New Republic by the theoretical physicist Carlo Rovelli. I read it mostly because it had been quote-mined by Elizabeth Mitchell here.

The primary work itself is about characterizing the gene content of the rhesus Y chromosome (a laborious, and necessary task). This particular write-up, however, is slightly frustrating for some of the (wrong) assumptions it makes, but most noticable is the image: The picture of the “X and Y” chromosomes where the X chromosome, presumably, looks like an X, and...
