Jose Ospina Posted almost 4 years ago Science As A Human Right Well Timothy, thanks for the exemplification. Exemplification definitively helps when discussing about something. I now understand better the way in which you would like to use science in broader areas. I'm sure that, well done, this would represent a better approach than simply value-oriented or interest-oriented decisions. I just wanted to put in evidence one danger about this, which obeys some sort of mitification people sometimes have about science, and it is that the science can be easily misinterpreted and misused. Science is not an "automatic correct solution provider", but a methodology that allows you to improve (or completely change) your solution based on the previous ones, while keeping, as you mentioned, "the measurements" as the only indisputable axiom. The problem is that for a single reality, there are infinite models that explain the measurements... On my work, I continuosly have to use science to solve practical problems, and I have learned that, contrary to what people usually believe, using science to solve practical problems is largely more about building the right model that provides the right answers (a subjective activity), rather than providing the solution based on a particular model (an exact scientific acitivity).
