Science’s “Garbage Pizza” explanation
Whether they call it a “Perfect Storm” or a freak combination of events – Science is increasingly relying on the shotgun approach to replace the magic bullet.
Just any the possible solution that fits their needs becomes “the” solution – shotgun science riddles the problem with possibilities that somehow become an aggregate probability — and are presented as a theoretical certainty; an explanation that has become the go-to scenario of authorities: It’s an approach that removes accountability from the table – our societal problems are due to “environment, heredity, profiling, opportunity, lack of funding, compromised policy making, bias, and every other ingredient they can toss onto the problem [no anchovies, please].
Ordinary people say; “I don’t know, it could be anything” – but scientists say: “I do know; it’s everything” — one small step for science: one big leap for equivocation.
