The Three Scariest Words In Science

"Our models show".

I hope you've been paying close enough attention to notice that the mathematical models used by epidemiologists and often cited by Theresa Tam have a low batting average right?

Whenever you hear "our models show" quietly stop what you're doing, ignore and RUN.
