The Conjectural is a science news show experiment. It's in celebration that we live without complete information -- our lives are conjectural.
In our search for knowledge, we'll also continue to find reasons to doubt old conclusions, even scientific conclusions that can be demonstrated again and again. But such is life -- it's conjectural -- so let's celebrate it as it is! -- @TheConjectural
