TED - The Danger of Science Denial


Recommended Posts

It should be kept in mind that every theory we currently know and love is succeptable to falsification. The theory may perish, but the methodology lives on.

The great danger is the rejection of the scientific approach -- theory tested empirically -- rather than the doubt or denial of any one theory (evolution included). The denial of the methodology implies that the cosmos is Unknowable and we must take the word of the Priest, Pope or Mullah de jour.

I was really inspired by his time-machine metaphor.

Yes, science is beautiful. Ideology against life can be a danger.

I wonder whether Objectivists sometimes hold their ideology in antithesis to life.
