Definitely don’t count your chickens

I’m a big fan of highlighting sentences that are so waffly and filled with caveats that they become meaningless. This one, from a recent Scientific American article on autism, is a current favorite.

If such futuristic scenarios ever materialize, we may one day be able to say that we are nearing a cure for children such as Adrianna and Jermaine’s young Jayden.

So IF these “futuristic” scenarios materialize, can we say we’ve defeated autism? Well, no, but at that point we MAY be able to say we’re NEARING a cure.

It’s practically a done deal.
