Summary
"Fate is written in many forms: in the line of a palm, in the swirls of a fingertip, in the helix of a chromosome ... While forensic science is accepted by many as inarguable proof of guilt, numerous studies have called into question both the theory and the practice of forensics, as it is often used to reinforce previous assumptions rather than to question them. Many methods commonly accepted as indicators are instead reflections of what we wish to see. Galton, the inventor of fingerprinting, has been called 'racist even by Victorian standards.' In many ways, fingerprinting is the new palmistry: fervently believed, in spite of any evidence to the contrary." --
