    I plan for this thread provide illustrations of how science works. I ask that any additional posts to this thread be made brief; to the point wrt the process(es) of observation, discovery, hypotheses, formulation of theory, experimentation, publication, or your views on the process itself.

    The “simple to advanced” aspect to these posts gives us leeway in attempting to appeal to various levels of expertise in our audience. I.e., the primary motivation right now is to broaden the audience, perhaps to even outside of AZ.

    Flavivirus research (including Zika), from mid-2016.

    I simply adore this video and it really is all about how science works and would also inspire anyone who is not afraid to think.

    Nice video on Darwin’s work. Inspired me to look up “gemmule” (which is defined differently today), which in turn led me to the similar topic “endospore“… developmental biology concepts not known yet in Darwin’s times.

    Science requires both deduction and induction.

    One without the other — such as Albert Einstein’s thought experiments, or mathematics only, or theoretical physics — can and has resulted in flawed science and vast waste of taxpayers’ money.

    Flavivirus implications are more “frightening” to theists than to atheists; we accept natural selection and its consequences.

    Think MMO, means, motives, opportunities. The current crop of theists in America’s government seem determined to reduce the means and opportunities to cope with the consequences.

    Ah, the People of Science videos. Thanks, Robert. I have seen and enjoyed several of them.
