Misconceptions Scientific

  1. Aug 15, 2006 #1
    There are many misconceptions about things and people in our society. I say one of the most misunderstood groups in America is scientists.

    Can you give some of the many misconceptions of Science,Physics, scientists,and physicists?

    "Scientists are not athletic"

    You should see some of the chemists who work at Pfizer as they compete at any of the local running, biking, or triathlon races.
