WOO-HOO--what a ride!

Science is the most valid source of information about humans and planet earth, but best be aware of the influences on scientists that affect the validity of their work. And the scientific method has severe constraints imposed by human sensory organs and brain structures.

Faith in science as a valid source of information is being seriously damaged.  And the damage is likely to increase as it becomes clear in the next year how badly many of the recent pronouncement of science have been politicized and bastardized.

Scientists have too often accommodated the needs and agendas of governments, businesses, interest groups, and themselves.

A. Influences on scientists and publishers---they are very human.


All scientists have assumptions and biases that affect their research.  Objectivity is impossible, but an ideal worth striving for.

B. Dancing with Reality---let's give Reality a great big hug


Answer three questions about your intimate relationship with Reality.  Included are many quotations from people exploring the same questions, and a few funny fillers to give your brain a rest.  Your answers and mine are at the end.
