Identifying Assumptions

Too lazy to read this right now, but there’s stuff in here I want to read later.

Most scientists would not say that science leads to an understanding of the truth. Science is a determination of what is most likely to be correct at the current time with the evidence at our disposal

Science is, however, a human endeavor and is subject to personal prejudices, misapprehensions, and bias.

Science is often more about proving a scientific statement wrong rather than right
