two lies are culture has bought about controversial lifestyles

“Our culture has accepted two huge lies. The first is that if you disagree with someone’s lifestyle, you must fear or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don’t have to compromise convictions to be compassionate.”

Does Popular Science Rest Upon Unproven Assumptions?

         Many people use science as their authority in determining truth, facts, right, wrong, etc....  They see science as self correcting and infallible (at least in the long term). However, science is not perfect, often not objective (although it tries to appear that way), requires assumptions, and is not always a good foundation for decision making.

Science can draw the opposite conclusions from previous research, when new research is processed.

Can a person or a society really build its life on the foundation of science, when it is constantly changing?
