Please remember that I am not a scientist, so my description of scientific ideas and principles shouldn’t be taken as scientifically rigorous.
If you are a scientist, or particularly well versed in a topic that I cover, and notice I’ve made a major howler then please contact me. I’m always willing to learn, so I welcome any constructive guidance.
I encouraged readers to research scientific topics and principles for themselves. There are plenty of books on most areas of science aimed at novices that will provide you with a good foundation in the topic. You can then go on to build on that knowledge if your interest is piqued. I will endeavor to mention any books or web references that I am aware of when I discuss a science topic, however I can obviously never be comprehensive.
