The Scientific Method Man and the Voynich Manuscript

Gordon Rugg cracked the 400-year-old mystery of the Voynich manuscript. Next up: everything from Alzheimer's to the origins of the universe.

The article looks at the way in which many scientific studies, may not be so scientific at all and how as academics get more expertise, they get less knowledge. As someone who works with academics every day, its a very interesting article and one that agrees with a few things that I have thought over the years.
