Springboard #1: The Misuse of Science

Springboards

“The Einsteinian constant is not a constant, is not a center. It is the very concept of variability. In other words, it is not the concept of something — of a center starting from which an observer could master the field — but the very concept of the game.” – Jacques Derrida (philosopher).

“I have no idea what this is intended to mean.” – Dr Steven Weinberg (Nobel physicist).

Any pieces on the comic/tragic misuse of science are welcome. There’ll be many other such posts aimed to be a springboard for ideas – entries obviously will not be limited to these.
