Edge does a thing

A bunch of people weigh in on scientific ideas that should be retired.


Whenever these sorts of lists crop up, I tend to get that feeling people have when watching TV shows that feature subjects they know something about. There is this moment when you realise that the opinion being presented is shallow/glosses over important concepts/presents only one side of an ongoing debate/is just plain false. And so you begin to wonder: is the seemingly-plausible stuff you see being presented on a topic you don’t really understand just as bad?


Anyway, there is some interesting stuff in there at least. Have a read and make up your own mind.
