Spiteful Models

Acceptable Supermarine Spiteful

One of the most spiteful and most unhealing properties of scientific models is their capability to strike down truth and take its place.

And often, these models serve as blinkers, by limiting attention to an excessively narrow area. The exaggerated trust in models has contributed much to the affected and ingenuine character of larger parts of current natural research.
