When the Global Warming Alarmists tried to scare the crap out of us all -- back before they were discredited as falsifying data and making shit up -- I always had this idea in the back of mind, unformed in thought, that basically, a little humility is necessary in science. But I couldn't quite articulate the attitude -- and there was some attitude toward it.
If you haven't read the Twitter site, Shit My Dad Says, check it out. Anyway, the host's father perfectly summed up my attitude toward science here
"Science and Mother Nature are in a marriage where Science is always surprised to come home and find Mother Nature blowing the neighbor."
Yeah, that's what I was trying to say.
