Big questions

Annually, the website Edge asks a big question and this year it asks what scientific idea is ready for retirement? According to Max Planck - "A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it". In other words, science advances by a series of funerals. So Edge asks why wait that long? Among the suggested candidates for retirement are Moore's Law; Entropy and the Uncertainty Principle.
