Has Science Lost Its Way?

The single greatest threat to science right now comes from within its own ranks. Last year Nature, the prestigious international science journal, published a study revealing that “More than 70% of researchers have tried and failed to reproduce another scientist’s experiments, and more than half have failed to reproduce their own experiments.”

    It is time to distinguish between science and scientism. Thanks to political interference and government funding a lot of science has been replaced with scientism.

    The article in Nature magazine is a good thing. It means someone is “checking the checking”. A process of slow gradual improvement is preferable to Islam’s approach to the universe (“Just believe what the Imam says or else you are sub human kuffar”). Too many scientists are going after research money just for the sake of it. The scientific method needs auditing just like anything else.
