On Scientific Doubt
Honest scientists are filled to the brim with it and are actually very humble epistemologically. They especially DO NOT go around proclaiming that the "debate is over" (the fact that they know that the debate is never over, that science isn't settled by a show of hands, and that scientific knowledge changes markedly from year to year, decade to decade, etc.) or ridicule those who's theories are different.......Oh, and, yeah, they steer clear of politics. Don't forget about that.
