The scientific process. An engineer once told me a joke: "A scientist is considered a success when his peers agree with him. An engineer is considered a success when he actually gets it right." After a physicist's comment today I am starting to think it wasn't a joke. The physicist said if enough people can be convinced of the validity of someone's theory it is accepted and propagated as true, regardless of whether or not it is true. I thought science was supposed to be objective. Doesn't this method sound more like a popularity contest? Is science a democracy? Get enough people to vote for your theory and that somehow makes your theory right? Gotta say, I am in shock. Maybe I should spend my free time studying engineering?
