“The general public has long been divided into two parts; those who think that science can do anything and those who are afraid it will.” Thomas Pynchon an American novelist.
Fierce, sometimes anti-social, public positions here are interesting. Simply to get a scientific article published can take a battle royale with the decision-makers for a given scientific journal. The two positions Pynchon references seem to be the extreme positions where people don’t seem to understand they are seeing science as, painted with one brush.
It would seem frequently, undue fear and arrogance are the problems where objectivity falls short. Too many of us seem prone to agendas. May God grant us peace and a deeper appreciation of truth in addressing those controversies that separates us.
