The march of scientism

Opinion reads: Many scientists and nonscientists appear to have this faith and believe in the universal supremacy of the scientific method with a fervor that resembles religious fundamentalism. Many also subscribe to the theory that science has been the driving force behind much of the “progress” humans have achieved over the past thousand years or so, and similarly assume that most of the progress made by those outside the sciences is attributable to the “fact” that they have had the luxury of standing on the giant shoulders of the scientists who preceded them. They are thus absolutely convinced that ever more science is the best, or even the only, way we can solve our current problems and continue to progress into the future.
