My compiled rants against physicists. In response to like-minded quale, I wrote the following:
quale wrote: I dropped out of being a physics major because everyone was just dogmatically accepting the notion of entropy as the "log of the number of states" and didn't want to question what the hell that really meant.
Since I like my knowledge network to be dense / tight (i.e. certain), ignoring foundational questions and paradoxes is totally against my cognitive style, but I wonder if being less conservative might sometimes be a good idea, if the goal is to make the science progress: it might sometimes be a good idea to ignore foundational questions.
