Re: HYB: JI X SIB hybrids

Yes scientists must be sceptics. They must doubt the authenticity of 
accepted beliefs (the first definition in my dictionary), in order to make 
progress. They must develop their theorems, and strive to prove them in the 
face of doubters.
Christy is a true sceptic - she does not believe that JI and Sib DNA 'just 
don't mix', and will most likely persevere, even if her seedlings prove to 
be not what she believes them to be. If at first you don't succeed....

The other definitions in my dictionary are:
2. a person who mistrusts people, ideas, etc. in general.
3.a person who believes that real knowledge of things is impossible.

I think we have at least two different types of sceptics involved in this 

My opinion anyway - Jan Clark
