    Folks;

    An article looking over evidence. and asking the scientific question that’s supposed to be the scientist’s stock in trade: How much much must evidence diverge from theory before theory is reconsidered?

    Better to see the beautiful, ugly truth of the cosmos
    The assumption that the cosmos is symmetrical over large scales is an elegant one, but how far must evidence deviate from expectations before we rethink it?

    I consider the article as one that lays the groundwork for questioning prevailing wisdom, or closely held beliefs. (faith-based science) Good to skepticism making a come-back.
