It should amuse everyone that people completely unfamiliar with the scientific method and science in general are the ones most likely to promote memes of “follow the science” and “believe in science.”

Paying Lip Service to Science

@MountainJay I am not trying to be too critical, I know this is free content, but I feel like I can't share this article to anyone not in the NA family because of poor editing, misspellings and grammatical errors. I absolutely agree with the premise and think John does a good job here of pointing out the issues, I just think he needs an editor 😂

@ampsw20, I noticed the same thing! Not up to @Johncdvorak's usual standards. (Said with love!)

@MountainJay 'believing' in science has annoyed me for years.... accept it or question it for sure, but from a purely language/creating meaning perspective its nonsense

@DameLoveandLight @MountainJay yep, people are very religious about "science" being a concrete object rather than a process

@DameLoveandLight @MountainJay they have formed into a religion. like the doc 'Wild Wild Country' a generation without religion will naturally try to make a new one as adults, because they feel like something is missing. Everyone apparently needs to have worship, even those in power who say they are not religious
