Muriel Lederman's point seems important to me -- that using the idea of
"real scientist" is one way to throw some subjective power around.
And (sorry I didn't note the name) someone else said that a real scientist
is someone who does real science -- sorry, I don't know what that means.
The more I think about it, the more confused I am about what all the
"scientists" have in common. This is not meant to put the profession
down in any way -- I just wonder what makes some things "science"
and others not, some people "scientists" and others not. It obviously
matters, as Muriel noted.
