Thanks for your comment. I like science and I have a lot of respect for scientists. I'm not a scientist myself, but I'm always glad to have the opportunity to have a discussion with one who can express what they're doing in terms I that don't require a degree first in order to comprehend. The ones I'm thankful are far and few between are the ones that are the academic elitists and technocrats who think that the whole world should be run according to their algorithms. That's what got us into the nuclear energy mess we're in now, and I tend to think that all the EM radiation we're swimming in on a daily basis could have more of a negative impact than they think too.Science is a form of rational inquiry, a particular one suited to investigating the natural world. But there's other forms of inquiry (or knowledge production) that don't use the scientific method as we understand it today...I think.
People who think that science can find out the truth about anything and everything are fooling themselves. Thankfully, those people seem far and in between, from my experience.
