Science is a two-headed sword. Beneficial yet usually misused, with dire consequences. In the recent past scientists insisted that the earth was a flat planet located at the center of the universe, the only planet anywhere with life on it. Those who subscribed to that belief were called The Flat Earth Society. Anyone who suggested otherwise was ridiculed or ignored by the stubbornly self-righteous scientists. Then as new discoveries were made and members of the Flat Earth Society slowly died off, the scientific establishment was forced to admit that they were wrong, reluctantly admitted that earth is indeed sphere shaped.
The next generation of scientists also admitted that earth is just one of the many trillions of planets scattered across the galaxies throughout the universe. Despite their colossal errors of ignorance-from which they may never recover-most scientists still cling to the foolish fallacy that humanity is the only intelligent life that exists anywhere in all of creation. They qualify their claim by saying that since there's no empirical proof of extraterrestrial life then we can't no for sure, and so therefore it's not true.
The problem with their reasoning is that even though there's a lack of evidence to verify a fact, that doesn't automatically make it untrue. Though confirmation may be difficult we can still know things by other forms of knowledge such as intuition or common sense. But for scientists to say that everything is false unless they prove otherwise, and that nothing is true less they validate it, makes them the sole arbiter of what we are supposed to think reality is.
Furthermore, theories that scientists swore were true are constantly being proven false, and we pay the price for all their stupid mistakes. After their theories being discredited and blunders exposed non-stop, these shameless scientists still have the gall to demand undeserved respect. Their ignorance knows no bounds as they appoint themselves the final judge of all things. Never mind the major problems they cause, forget about the fact that they're destroying the planet; they have complete control and we are at their mercy.
