Us and scientific community? WTF?
Are scientists nationless? All around the world 1 billion is 1 million millions.
Not here. Here a million million is a trillion.
Maybe I should have capitalize "U.S."
That's precisely what the article says, the only place in the world where 1 million million is a trillion is the US and (added by the author) the "scientific community".
Oh...well, clearly the US isn't part of the scientific community, which is why the article had to explicitly state it.
No, the US is a country. the scientific community is worldwide.
You missed my point. Consider the whole ID debate in the US. There's no way this country can be considered competent in science.
Ward, based on the link you provided, shouldn't it have been "1000 billion" instead of "1000 trillion" - but only outside the U.S..
I think I've even more confused.
