In the lab for this week, we learned about hypothesis testing, which is a vital part of the scientific method. To test a hypothesis, we sample data from the population of interest, analyze those data, and then make inferences about the people. Hypothesis testing is based on probability. If we determine that the null hypothesis is probably false, we reject it and move forward based on that assumption. However, we understand that we could still be wrong. This ever-present possibility is a fundamental limitation of the scientific method. We must remain open-minded to additional evidence that could confirm or disconfirm our existing assumptions. This is why we do not say that a study “proved” this or that. Instead, we say that the study’s results “suggest” or “indicate” this or that. Each study contributes a little to the overall body of scientific knowledge (called “the literature”). And the p-values and effect sizes of each study must be carefully reported so that the scientific community can carefully weigh the strength of our conclusions.
Read 1 Corinthians 13:12. What are the limitations we face when interpreting the Bible? How are these limitations similar or different from the limitations of scientific interpretation?
How would you define “intellectual humility?” Have you ever known anyone with a very high intellectual humility level? What about a shallow level of intellectual humility? How did this character trait impact their work and interactions with others?
How would you rate your level of intellectual humility? What does it mean to be intellectually humble as a student? As a researcher? As a Christian? What can you do to increase your intellectual humility?
