Not a Scientist

Posted by Alan Kellogg on 04/21/2018

Being a scientist is not a matter of having a degree but a matter of approach. You are a scientist, even if it kills you.

Might get me indicted for fraud! Thanks, Alan. I do enjoy the company of those who do the heavy lifting--real scientists.

I say stuff the frauds, insofar as you apply the scientific method as you understand it, you are a scientist. And you will always be a scientist even if it kills you. Just watch Benford and Brin's reaction to you saying you're not a scientists. They know scientists. They know people with degrees who are not scientists by any measure, and they know that you are a scientists because you damn well act like a scientist. Looking like a fish doesn't make you a fish. Not looking like a fish doesn't mean you're not a fish. And I'll be there are other scientists who accept your work as scientific because it is. Greg Bear, you're a scientist, get over it.
