Correction!

In one of my earlier posts I made the following comment

A scientist who does not admit he might potentially be wrong is really a theologian.

That line prompted a few emails, but today a gentle reader emailed me the error of my ways:

Since I am one, even theologians routinely admit they might potentially be wrong. Well… about most things, anyway. Humility about one’s own knowledge and wisdom is a spiritual gift, and a mark of maturity.

Scientists who do not admit they might potentially be wrong are simply: fools.

I stand corrected.
