LOL Scientist: Louis Pasteur


Louis Pasteur’s research led to the advancement of the still accepted Germ Theory. He created the first vaccine for rabies. One of the key figures in the development of the field of microbiology, Pasteur invented the technique of food processing known today as pasteurization, whereby liquids such as milk are thermally processed to reduce or remove pathogens.

    We have to be careful excepting Pasteur’s views. The germ theory of disease is just a theory after all and we should give equal weight to other views (i.e., evil spirits). Have the Intelligent Design advocates taught you nothing?

    If you can’t write correctly, please do not insult yourself by critisizing one of the most brilliant scientists God ever bequeathed to the world.

    The word is accepting.

    “The word is accepting.”

    Now, now, English is a funny language. While it is possible to accept a view (receive it with approval), you can also except it (exclude it from consideration) or discept it (discuss it freely) as well.

    Isn’t pedantry fun?
