The Weaponization of “Science”

Rupert Sheldrake has championed the distinction between the scientific method and what he termed the “scientific world view”.

James Corbett has just given us a different slant on this twisting of science:

“Science” is being turned into a political weapon. Not the scientific method, but the reified “science” of scientism, exemplified by the politically-motivated March For Science, the politically-biased peer review process, the politically-charged infotainment from political hacks like Bill Nye, and the politically-appointed scientific regulators who always put their corporate interests and political worldview ahead of scientific accuracy.

End of quote.

The evidence for what Sheldrake and Corbett both discuss is overwhelming. As with pretty much everything else in our world, the public, including many scientifically trained people, believe that science and their scientific world view exists entirely as a result of the application of the scientific method. If this were EVER true, its days are long gone. There is the promoted meme that the public accepts and then there is the reality, and the two have a very tenuous link.
