(via The Triceratops Panic: Why Does Science Keep Changing Its Mind? : Krulwich Wonders… : NPR)
I’ve been thinking a good amount about the perception of science lately.
Science is awesome… thankfully that never changes. More specifically however, while I will miss Triceratops I think it is wonderful that there is still so much to learn about something we all considered fact for so long. RIP Triceratops and Brontosaurus, you’re still cool, but you’re no longer real.
More embarrassingly, I’d completely forgotten about listening to this last summer. This marks the first real and useful thing I’ve learned (or in my case remembered) from Tumblr that wasn’t related to genitalia.
