Creation Moment 4/6/2017 - Big Science Plays Politics

I have seen the foolish taking root:  Job 5:3
"Scientists are gathering this month to march – for what? How different is Big Science from any other special interest group making demands on the government?
In the wake of the Trump presidency, leaders of Big Science (journal editors and academy
spokespersons who presume to speak for ‘science’ and for every scientist) are rallying the troops against what they perceive as threats to ‘science,’ as if science is some independent ‘thing’ out there that exists independently of humans and must be protected. There’s the big ‘March for Science’ coming on April 22. There’s been a flurry of editorials. Angry letters protest the Trump administration, primarily worried about cuts to ‘science’ funding (even though Trump very openly congratulated NASA with strong funding).
For a taste of scientism’s vulnerability to charges of hypocrisy, take a look at statements by J. Scott Armstrong, statistician and forecasting expert at Wharton College, who critiques the methods of one of the biggest Big Science projects in the world: climate change.  Armstrong evaluated numerous scientific papers on climate forecasting and concluded that “Fewer than 1 percent of papers published in scientific journals follow the scientific method.” To the extent his analysis is true, scientism deflates. Unless every scientist and every scientific institution illustrates the above principles, ‘science’ forfeits its right to dictate to other people what is true and what they should do." CEH
