Is science already dead?
« on: Aug 17, 2018, 09:04:36 AM »
Following on from a comment in another thread, how much can we still rely on science? There is one scandal after another: plagiarism, results that don't come out the same when a study is replicated, people paying to have their work published in journals that are not what they seem...

Is science already useless?

If not, why not?

If so, what will take its place? Religious belief?
