Limitations of science

From Conservapedia

Jump to: navigation, search

A few of the limitations of science are: "the scientific method is limited to what can be observed with the senses; the scientific method is limited to the present; the scientific method is limited to telling us “how” a process works, not “why.”; the scientific method is limited in that it is amoral (non-moral); and the scientific method is limited in that it cannot deal with the unique."[1]

Another limitation of science is that science is a social enterprise and current societal ideological fashions can impinge on the objectivity of scientists and squash dissent. Also, the fall of man and man's sinful nature introduces problems into the scientific community such as scientific fraud, scientists engaging in immoral research such as eugenics, egotistical scientists making proclamations beyond their expertise and scientists actively suppressing various truths (see: Suppression of alternatives to evolution and Evolution and Cases of Fraud, Hoaxes and Speculation and Atheism and deception).

  • "The great climate science centres around the world are more than well aware how weak their science is. If you talk to them privately they're scared stiff of the fact that they don't really know what the clouds and the aerosols are doing." [2]
