The difference is betwixt the ( possibly ) religious belief-systems like Science™ and Christianity™, and everyday science and Christianity.
Science™ is Big-Science™, and all of the institutions, corporations, NGOs, Governments™, etc... that it has taken-over, and controls to do it's
EX : Pfizer™ and Moderna™ are commonly called science companies, when any analysis shows they are predatory corporations, like the vast majority
Anybody still referring to them as science companies sends-up a red-flag.
Is a supposedly scientific experiment, where the procedures are pre-geared towards a specific result : still science ?
For me : it has then prostituted itself already, and will refer to it as Science™.
And any one who believes in it, and defends it, is in my opinion, religious.
Because they either believe in it for no objective reason, or they pretend to believe in it for a potential advantage of some kind.
The term " Settled-Science™ " would also be a belief, as the scientific-method is always ready to integrate new info, and make adjustments if new
Scientism™ is one of the names for this belief-system, that is not in the realm of " real " science.
In a similar way : Christianity™ differs from Christianity.
So here we are wondering which aspects of those, are possibly able to reach some common-ground surrounding Simulation-Theory.
Or for a fervent believer : Simulation-Theory™ ... LoL !!!
