What people do in the name of science isn't the same as science.
What people do in the name of religion isn't the same as religion.
People abuse labels and causes in their own interests, the problem is people, not the thing they are misusing.

Mh, the bad things that people do in the name of science, is also science. Like it or not.

Science is simply put, doing something and see what happens, learning something new, and using this knowledge.

What is good and what is bad is relative.

Take for instance animal testing, it is horrible for the animals but in the long run good for all of us.

… at the end of the day ‘science’ itself is nothing more than a term, indifferent to good or bad.

It is childish how you’re trying to claim that science is good and great, but when misused it is no longer science. That’s BS and you know it. :mrgreen:

Well, you manage to be patronising, insulting and twist my words in one post.

Where did I say science is good and great ?
Where did I say when it is misused it is no longer science ?

Childish is deliberately misinterpreting peoples words for your own ends and making up things they didn't say.

Can you give an example of: “What people do in the name of science isn't the same as science.”

Thanks in advance!
