On the Pseudo-Certainty of Science

I find the bias in science to be even more disappointing than the bias in religion. More to the point, I find the sense of certainty with which some scientists speak to be more disappointing than the sense of certainty with which some religious leaders speak. In both cases, we seem to be confused about the difference between evidence, certainty, and faith. Our inability to parse the difference leads to a condition of pseudo-certainty that defies the limited nature of our actual circumstances.
