#1: Why Science Must Work Like Poker Author: DanLocation: USA : Mon Jun 01, 2009 10:14 pm
Both are Show & Tells done in front of all participants = in Public. We don't take your word on a showdown.

Both are "objective" = all participants agree they can see the cards(measurements).

Every player is an equal. Its rules and procedures treat everyone alike, smart, dumb, drunk, sober, aces always beat kings.

A scientist's 'win' is to perfectly describe how our universe works in terms of 'objective measures of cause and effect'. Period. In science, the factual data, the factual measurements and observations always trump theory. "Just the facts, mam, just the facts." Jack Webb, Dragnet.

Like poker, scientific pots are 'questions & disagreements' about 'logical and observational discrepancies to how well the present set of theories describe reality. Thus wrong predictions are what we must use to improve theories by using our imagination, intuition, experience, gut feelings, and above all, public "negative feedback" to improve our always provisional theories.

Only evidence and data, not appeals to authority must always decide In Theory; but sadly, not in prior nor present practice.

Thus to prevent the self-serving(unconscious own cost minimizing) defenders of existing theory from blocking dissent, a No 1st Cost List is required to objectively seek the truth about how ourselves and our universe work.

When data shows your hypothesis wrong, change it immediately and thank God for an objective discrepancy.

Hiding data that disagrees seems to be a common denominator in the trials conducted by our drug companys. Advantia trials conducted by Glaxo SmithKline are the latest example reported in the Seattle Times today. They left out many material bad results resulting in deaths

I am sick of the lies that pervade our society. They foul the mind of our society.
