I Disagree with Everyone about ‘Science’

Perusing Twitter can be toxic. But it can also be enlightening. One of the things that has struck me lately is how much I disagree with everyone about science—including people’s definition of what it is and how we should use it. And instead of me launching into a worthless explanation of what I mean by this, I’ve boiled it down to a simple, humorous illustration.
Ruling Class: “Science says we need to cut off our healthy limbs to keep from committing suicide!”
Me: “Then ‘science’ is wrong.”
Left: “He’s anti-science and should be banned from society!”
Center & Right: “Science actually doesn’t say that. In fact, studies suggest keeping our healthy limbs is likely a good thing.”
Me: <Rolls Eyes at Everyone>
