26 Proteus 11 months ago Uh huh. If I dont want to believe the moon landing actually happened that doesnt mean I dont believe in science Well yeah, it pretty much does. Unless you're actually rationally disputing not only the history, but the evidence - in which case, the resources are easily found which provide the objective science, point-by-point. Still, of course you're free to believe whatever you want - as long as you're not making any decisions based on it which affect others.But "believe in science" is somewhat of a sloppy rhetorical shortcut, using a word usually associated with the domain of faith, where anyone is free to choose to "believe" or not. Science specifically doesn't demand or even ask for "belief" in anything. Nothing is to be accepted on authority or even established tradition. Everything is always up for reconsideration - if that reconsideration is based in observation, evidence, and verification via hypothesis, prediction, experiment, and result. Rinse and repeat. I do "believe" that the scientific method - and the body of knowledge about natural law on this planet and in the universe/s beyond which it has built over millennia (despite the shortcomings and errors of individual scientists along the way) - is man's greatest achievement, and our best hope for survival and improvement.And I "believe" that a reverse-politically-correct social agreement to consider everyone's personal opinion equally valid, to give the same time and attention to vacuous ideological nonsense as we give the weight of actual observation and evidence - much less taking that nonsense into consideration when making decisions that affect the future of mankind - is not only stupid, but the way civilizations fail.Flat earth crap and moon-non-landing conspiracy theories are not the same thing. But they're sure related.There are myriad things of which science is unsure, and about which it freely admits the limits of its knowledge. That the American Apollo missions landed on the moon is not one of them.
