Someone: "Science is a precise and exact thing with definite answers that everyone in the field agrees on"

Chemists: Haha no

Physicists: *maniacal laughing*

Linguists: *fistfighting each other whilst cackling like hyenas*

@norikawa anthropologists: *literally shooting at each other*

paleontologists: *doing the fistfighting and cackling thing*

archaeologists: yeah whatever, now will you please STOP BUILDING SHOPPING MALLS over the ruins of ancient cities, THANKS

@troodon @norikawa remember when
paleontologists used to fistfighting, while literally faking new creatures by putting together random incomplete skeletons?

remember when archaeologists were primarily imperialist colonialist grave robbers?

good times.

@meena I once picked up an Anthropology book from the late 19th century on a whim. Apparently the worst thing about Native Americans is that they all have different languages, which makes teaching the Bible very difficult.

The author then ponders that while the inferior races are probably going to die, it doesn't seem very Christian to kill them.

The later stuff was more concerned with counting calories in places where calories are easier to count, so I suppose that's at least more scientific

@malin counting is very scientific, so long as you don't try to do it on a computer
