Philosophy Wire: Science's inherent limitations, fish, stars.


Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2014-04-11]:

There are 10 times more fish in the sea than we thought. [1]
Despite what we though before about the universe being almost void of planets, scientists now think that almost every star in the universe has a planet. [2]
Everything is true in science. Just give it a little time...
Continuously changing data, lead to continuously changing results.
Continuously changing tools with which data are interpreted, leas to... whenever you want!
Unless you really believe "10 times more" or "planets are everywhere" were just two minor glitches that will never happen again. At least with the currently available data...
From the "we cannot fly", to the speed of sound barrier to life on Mars, our course is a constant "cannot be done"... A constant "this does not exist"... Until the next falsification...
