Your beloved scientific method has proven itself a colossal failure and subject to incredible error. In the last few months, for example, the scientific method, which had previously been used to state with utter confidence that nothing can exceed the speed of light, FAILED to predict that outcome. Pompous adherence to THAT fairy tale is amazing. And yet no one had a picture of any of it.
The scientific method got us PICS of the surface of mars, the moon, titan, and venus. what have you done? The scientific method was the basis for the opera experiments that showed that particles can travel faster than the speed of light. What have you done other than complaining on the Internet, on a computer, looking at a monitor, all of which require a fair manipulation of physics, understood from experimentation using the scientific method. I suppose we can go back to divining the future from goat entrails, or judge a person by the lumps on their head, or convict a person based on weather they float, or can stand a hot burning piece of metal on their tongue. There are several communities that reject modern life, like al queda, or the flat earth society. But complaining about the scientific method on the ultimate expression of human technology, the Internet is the ultimate expression of Blind Ignorance.
