We live in an unscientific age.

Every day it seems that I am reminded about how unscientific we are today. I remember reading a talk by Richard Feynman on the very same subject. It's not so much that things in general are unscientific but that things are often unscientific for no reason at all and more imporantly, things that should be scientific are made unscientific.

While I don't want to talk about politics on this blog, I find the "Global Warming" theory itself very unscientific. I think that it's a valid hypothesis, however experiments can be show to support two conclusions, which makes it not very scientific… It seems that everyone has forgotten the law of convervation of energy and the 2nd law of thermodynamics.

In politics people are very emotional and this of course is unscientific but what bothers me, is that people call on reason and science to support the vauge and unproven. It's because the lack of understanding and lack of scientific practice that people get away with this, and the majority of people believe things stated as scientific when they are just opinion or hypothesis…

But I don't want science in everything. How pretty a flower is or how much you like or disklike some artwork, is not scientific, though cases have been made to show that, I don't think it's all that important to apply science to everything.
