There is no greater arrogance than someone who doesnít understand science telling you that science doesnít understand everything. |
That science doesn't understand everything is so obvious, to scientist and non-scientist alike, that to state it is banal rather than hubristic.
Science has revealed a lot about the cosmos/nature.
It has revealed that we, far from being separate from or somehow 'above' nature, are very much part of it, limited beings within it.
Science, as well as being a fairly accurate description of the world and how it works, is also a human product and, therefore, subject to the limitations of its practitioners.
It is politicians and capitalists, rather than the generality of scientists, who think they can use science and technology to manipulate and control the world and the rest of us within it.
It is they who are arrogant, lusting after power and wealth.
It is they who fail to understand the limitations of science - and human limitations.
