Review is done voluntarily byscientists; this is part of the cost of being a member of this greathuman undertaking. Science doesn’t claim Truth; although sciencestrives to be as accurate as humanly possible, that is often well shortof Truth. Asking grandpa what school was like in his childhood givesyou a primary source (grandpa), even if he insists that he walked 20miles through neck­deep snow, uphill both ways.
