Scientific Consensus[edit]

A section should be added dealing with the fallacy of scientific consensus which states that (this is a rough definition) if a large group of or majority of scientists agree that a certain subject is true, then it must be true. This is a fallacy as the accuracy of a theory is not determined by how many people believe it, but by how well it predicts/reflects reality. - 3/23/13 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 174.22.176.14 (talk) 02:30, 24 March 2013 (UTC)
