Response to Haggis for Breakfast (Reply #13)

14. I don't take it personally, but I do take science seriously. I take the correct use of scientific

words seriously, The ignorance about science in this country has led to a large percentage of people not believing in evolution or climate change, and failing to understand the most basic of scientific concepts. The word "theory" being missed as the poster I replied to did is a perfect example of the scientific illiteracy that seems to run rampant in the US. My initial reaction to the article was that the way it is written is bound to mislead people with low scientific literacy into believing that the concept of a white hole is more than a hypothesis that has never been observed and which has no underlying scientific theory that can explain how white hole is formed. The "visualization" suggests observations have been made. I had to look the concept up to fond out that it is a bit of a unicorn.
