The Birth of the Null

So in science it is said, that before can accept your hypothesis, you must first test it against the null. Only if we can reject the null, can we accept ourselves. It may not be ancient philosophy, but for me, it might as well be.

It's ok, not everyone is going to get every comic, but this is actually a statistics problem that is used in science quite a bit. To prove that something is true, you must first prove that the null hypothesis or opposite is not true. For example if I want to say that the sky is blue, I must first prove it is not any other color. Anyway, the null hypothesis is given using that little circle after the y in the last panel. This symbol is called Y naught. a pun on y not XD

I really wish i got this one, because I have found all your other comics hilarious, but I've only taken math through Trigonometry. :[ Oh well, just means I'll have to pay attention in precalc.
