Namnezia posted today with a quote that sums up everything I have been trying to teach my lab:
Good scientists will gladly let their pet hypotheses evolve or be discarded if evidence shows up to disprove them. Bad scientists will keep looking for specific data supporting their views while ignoring overwhelming amounts of data that don’t support their views.
Grad students, postdocs and everyone who is learning to be a scientist or trying understand what scientists say, take heed!!
