so we have better microphones now?

According to the article, it seems like we never really bothered measuring the sounds because they weren't clearly audible to human ears like birds or dogs are.

I guess I kind of always assumed that we were dissecting these animals to see if they had a voice box or not... It's not like animals can just magically make mouth sounds right?

It isn't that science is wrong. It is that science updates what it knows, when it learns what was believed to be true was incorrect. For thousands of years, many believed that because the old testament said insects had 4 legs, that the extra two appendages were non functional. But when someone realised the ancients were wrong, they changed their minds.

But the incest babies extra appendages are non functional. Clearly it was just a typo

What? My daughter can use her tail to grab things. It's not very useful because it's really short, but it is functional.


danteheehaw t1_iwbghdp wrote

Which daughter? The first one or the one that's also your daughter's mother

You don’t really grasp the concept of science, do you?


usrevenge t1_iwar4g4 wrote

That's how science works.

You make a theory and test it and if everyone tests it too and you were right it becomes considered a scientific fact.

But if someone proves that you were wrong. Even thousands of years later we get to say we learned something new and previous research was wrong.


Breeschme t1_iwarbmk wrote

Imagine thinking the literal scientific method makes science obsolete and deserving of quotations as if it’s not a real thing.


Shinigamae t1_iwaqxz1 wrote

That's what makes science great. They are true at times with current knowledge and equipment's capabilities. Then we found out that was not correct or not truly correct, we improve our record and repeat. Science never stops expanding for even a day.

Science is never right or wrong. It’s just observations.


NeedsSomeSnare t1_iwbbj1s wrote

You understand that it was a scientific process that discovered the animals do make sound, right...?

This is so funny to me. Do you really think this way? I'd love to pick your brain.
