Do you know that this is a mem in Russia. Every day you will find a newspaper with an article that begins with these words:

We respect British science.

აბა ყვავებს ვინ დაიჭერს, კარგო? გალიაში ბულბულები ზიან.

Speaking as a British scientist, these phrases often fill me with dread. They are normally followed by a pop-science over-simplification, that only serves to inform the layperson just enough to enforce the myth that science is about proving and establishing immoveable facts.

That’s not how science works and it’s not what scientists ever claim… but if I had a penny for every time I’ve heard accusations along the lines of ‘scientists are always changing their minds’, or ‘science can’t prove X’, then I would be a rich man… and I’d be able to retire. Think

Seriously, it's good to know British science is held in high esteem. Applause
