“Over the past half decade, there has been a growing trend signaling a shift in the perceived and accepted role of science. It is not uncommon to see slogans and mottos such as ‘the science is settled’ and ‘believe in science.’ Statements like this present two major problems: first, science is determined to be final and indisputable; second, it is accompanied by a value or moral judgment. … science should never be used as a justification in any government action to enforce moral systems.” (01/09/22)
