Considering the nature of this blog and its intended purposes I thought it would be a good idea to put up a disclaimer to cover any issues that might occur.
- I will endeavour to reference everything I write, especially within the pages section. However I would ask for some due consideration as some material, especially at the lower academic levels will not have any direct references and therefore be more or less impossible to accurately reference. In which case I shall try to find a substitute, and if not I hope that referencing for related material I’ve written of a higher academic level will suffice.
- I shall try to avoid injecting any opinion into the pages and instead use evidence to explain what the scientific consensus is. This is to avoid bias and contamination of the topic, I do want the pages to be good enough so as to be a useable resource. If an opinion is found that introduces an unfair bias, then please leave a comment and I shall try to rectify the mistake. On the other hand I shall inject as much opinion as I can into blog posts to make up for this.
- Science changes over time with every new discovery. Therefore some things I may have been taught could now have been proved wrong, or may be proved wrong in the future. If they are then please leave a comment with references and I shall try to rectify the mistake made.
- Please understand that, just like science, this whole project is a work in progress. I will never finish it due to its massive scale and science’s ever changing nature. It is also probable that there will be a large bias towards certain areas of science first, giving a disproportionate coverage. This will be due to a mix of things, such as what I have personally studied and know, as well as what I believe is important at the time of writing. Given enough time the bias should be reduced as I cover more topics. Indeed it will be reduced much faster if anyone feels they would like to contribute.
