I am sick and tired of hearing about the supposed “objectivity” of science and scientific inquiry.
The claim goes like this: Belief systems, whether religious or secular, deal in supernatural issues like the afterlife, morality, and the state of the soul. Science, on the other hand, deals in brute facts, and therefore needs to be taken seriously.
It’s an incredibly modern kind of claim, if you think about it. And I am just postmodern enough to be suspicious of it.
