Great article about the authenticity of scientific method
|Let’s check the science: Why should I trust science ahead of other knowledge?|
I have friends who accept all sorts of pseudoscientific ideas – astrology, homeopathy, channeling, energy medicine, to name a few. We occasionally argue about their validity, and usually end up at a stand-off. I point out that there is no scientific evidence to support them, and in many cases there is evidence to show they are nonsense. They adopt the position that science can’t claim the final word – that there are other sources of knowledge that have authority to match or even overrule science. Why are they wrong?
