  1. Hmmmm. “We believe what scientists interpret as fact is truth” sounds like something a clever-but-lazy English major might conceive of science as being.


    Scientific method refers to a body of techniques for investigating phenomena, acquiring new knowledge, or correcting and integrating previous knowledge.[1] To be termed scientific, a method of inquiry must be based on gathering observable, empirical and measurable evidence subject to specific principles of reasoning.[2] A scientific method consists of the collection of data through observation and experimentation, and the formulation and testing of hypotheses.[3]

    Although procedures vary from one field of inquiry to another, identifiable features distinguish scientific inquiry from other methods of obtaining knowledge. Scientific researchers propose hypotheses as explanations of phenomena, and design experimental studies to test these hypotheses. These steps must be repeatable, to predict future results. Theories that encompass wider domains of inquiry may bind many independently derived hypotheses together in a coherent, supportive structure. Theories, in turn, may help form new hypotheses or place groups of hypotheses into context.
    Scientific inquiry is generally intended to be as objective as possible, to reduce biased interpretations of results. Another basic expectation is to document, archive and share all data and methodology so they are available for careful scrutiny by other scientists, giving them the opportunity to verify results by attempting to reproduce them. This practice, called full disclosure, also allows statistical measures of the reliability of these data to be established.

    • That’s part of the fun of being on a University campus. These kids are starting to “think” for themselves a bit and feel so goddamn clever when they write dumb shit all over the walls. Way to dump your brains out while you dump your stool out. I’ve seen more hilariously inane shitstall philosophy at other institutions, the kid’s where I am at now are more interested in surfing.

    I see this one in the bathroom near my office every(ish) day: “Cogito ergo excretatum”
