This is just playing with words to avoid their legal responsiblity, everyone knows that, but they use their financial muscle to avoid addressing their behaviour, like a petulant bully. I cannot speak for physicists at the American flag I would like to apologize to any liberal I have not offended yet shirt so you should to go to store and get this turn of the 20th century, but from within the trenches, I don’t see many people who think that we are even remotely close to solving all the big problem or answering all the big questions. Most biologists I know think that we have not answered any of the big questions (e.g. how did life start?, why do we age?, how did consciousness arise, just to name very, very few), or at least not anywhere near completion. I have a lot of respect for Carl Woese who discovered Archaea and made so many important contributions to biology, but I really do not know who he was taking about, who thought we had answered all the questiomns and just needed to fill in the “details”. In any case, it’s all details.
