In many ways, I think biology’s use of metaphor, analogy, and verbal descriptions of concepts makes it more comprehensible than physical concepts based in abstract math. However, verbal language is susceptible to connotations and preconceived judgments. My hypothesis, shall we say, is that because much of biology is not mathematically based (like physics), many biological concepts are vague, ill-defined, ambiguous and imprecise. I believe this is a problem that should be fixed. Let me explain.
