The most important boring idea in the universe

Maintaining standards of evidence is the most important and least appreciated idea in science.Modern science was established in the late Renaissance when networks of researchers began working out best practices for linking evidence with conclusions.In the face of science denial and attempts to create a post-truth society, we have to protect the primacy of standards of evidence in science and society. I talk a lot about science to people who are not scientists. It's generally a lot of fun becau...
