The world of scientism is strangely delusive. Now scientists wish to take on the humanities…As noted, there is no reason scientists shouldn’t investigate controversially any aspect of reality. But this legacy here is that scientism drives research to false claims and fake results. Look at Darwinism. Is there any chance that someone like Pinker will ever see the problems?
Again and again scientists produce fake results. We had one here last week re: the Axial Age.
We see the process with Sam Harris and various others who have decreed buddhist enlightenment out of existence for no good reason save the rigors of scientism.
