Bitching about science

leave a comment »

For those who haven’t noticed:
“Science”, XKCD #54 and PHD #941 are in direct disagreement.

The point about the COBE mission, explained by Randall Munroe, is that it gave an amazing fit between theory and data.

And I remember something about the theory itself being somewhat normalized against the data… or was it? I can’t find it now…

But this (admittedly impressive) coincidence is all they have to go on.

Much of “science” isn’t really.
