Modern Science: Bragging About Precision in Sloppy Traditional Prose

Once you start really exploring scientific method, you realise that if you took the advertised exactitude seriously and you yourself obtained detailed knowledge of, not only scientific method, but also of what exactly science is defined as being in the first place, you'd get the distinct impression that you're more of a scientist than many practicing research scientists.

I guarantee that if you become an expert on scientific method and the definition of science---and don't even bother with the rest of the universals of science, just those two things alone---you would totally freak out the staff in just about any research facility today. And they would find a way to get rid of you asap.

Don't get me started on the laxness and politics of the environments their underlings often have to work in.

A lot of scientific research doesn't verify its own procedures, just as a lot of businesses don't verify design or procedures with real-world users before taking the product or service to market.

It's the collectivism, of course, but note the blatant hypocrisy of the hype versus the daily---as well as the theoretic---reality.

Just another reason why I avoid all organizations of any kind, as much as possible.
