(Audio reading of today’s post.) The sort of questions science can and cannot answer and, perhaps even more importantly, how to use and interact with science (as a human endeavor) properly is something I try to cover (but too briefly!) in some of the classes I teach. But, although it has come up here and there, I haven’t tried to discuss it extensively in a Substack post so I thought, “that might be helpful to some people” (just, you know, force your homeschoolers to read it, I linked a quiz at the bottom… that part is a lie). I hope this post doesn’t come off as too “wow, science is totally messed up today”… obviously I love science, science used well is a great thing, but almost anything removed from its proper place and limits becomes trouble.
