John Brock says yes, but we need to understand how models work in science. (Check out the video on Rosaland Franklin at that link.)
At Discovery Blogs, Neuroskeptic says we’re asking the wrong question. That may be so, but I think Neuroskeptic’s substitute question (“Is it true?”) isn’t much better. A lot of very good science isn’t “true.” But it’s still much better than pseudoscience. We should be looking for quality of justification rather than for “truth” here.
