Something Quite Interesting?

In this week’s episode of QI they talk briefly about the difference between what scientists think of as a theory and what people in general think of as a theory; the old “evolution is JUST a theory” chestnut. It was indeed quite interesting and also quite relevant to some blogs, so I thought I’d post it here just for some stats/research methods funsies.

The relevant bit starts at about 11mins &20 secs in ( and Ben Goldacre, author of ‘Bad Science’ is in this episode too!)
