Physicists can also forget about QCD or the classical theory of
elascticity & do 99.9999% of all the physics that there is - if they're narrowly
focussed specialists who are only interested in how their little specialty fits
into the big picture ("pinheads" one of my doctoral profs called them). But if
they're actually physicists, or some approximation to what used to be called
"natural philosophers", they'll hardly be content with that. I would think that
the same is true in biology.
