FIELD SCIENTISTS BOUGHT OUT BY SPECIAL INTERESTS
In ancient Greece, the famous philosophers were killed for questioning reason itself. In the 16th century, Galileo was burned at the stake for discovering basic astrophysics. In the 17th century, Newton was similarly killed for what amounts to questioning government authority. Since then, the scientific method has been used to prove what they hypothesized by replicating the results from previous tests in following tests. People who dedicate their lives to a vocation like mechanical engineers have even produced hypersonic intercontinental ballistic missiles and other forms of advanced jet propulsion! However, when people dedicate their lives to something, their professional talents may be in high demand to be bought out and then used for all of the wrong reasons. In fact, think about how a scientist gets paid. If you are dedicated to a professional science, you need to find an employer who will pay you for your work, so most "professional scientists" are big govt and industry insiders who produce favorable reports for them. When science is bought out, pizza is a fruit, more waste is eco friendly, power can do no wrong, inflation is a perfect supply-and-demand curve and is good for you, and "science" is final. The fundamental issue with this labcoat professionalism that statically tells us that theories are final is that it is not science. The scientific method is fundamentally characterized by the principle of replication, which is where repeat tests produce the same results. We all know this. The characteristically unscientific professionalism we have all seen by now conflates replicability with finality and always ignores the possibility for anomaly test results. The extreme other-end of this worldview is that because replicability is not finality it is all of a sudden ambiguity, which characterizes postmodernism. Basically, the scientific method is a spiritual manifestation that has produced replicable answers for topics that religions have been fighting wars over for thousands of years, so be very wary of this pseudo-religious labcoat professionalism that is fundamentally opposed to science.
