Paul Townend asks: "The BBC are reporting that a US government investigation has found that 28 top federal employees possess bogus college degrees (usually based on 'life experience'), and the phenomenon may be much bigger.

"The fundamental principle of science, the definition almost, is this: the
sole test of the validity of any idea is experiment."
