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?
