Perhaps the biggest evolutionary development in the course of the experiment involved some bacteria beginning to feed on citric acid.

Kevin Williamson imagines that scientists are free to “slug it out” in journals and other academic settings, so that the truth reliably emerges.
The idea that scientists are like tribal elders, to be respected and never questioned, much less smirked at (God forbid), is one possible perspective.
Let’s encourage dissent and embrace an authentically liberal approach to scientific inquiry.
