Science is about fact…

“It doesn’t matter what you believe. Science is about fact. Facts are true.” Yet scientists cannot demonstrate their truth without resorting to their own specialized knowledge and language, and their own immutable assumptions; their initial ‘givens proved’ generated by scientists long gone. If I’m to truly understand them, I must know what they know. I must be educated as they were, and indoctrinated into their school. I must take it on faith that what has gone before really has been proven. I must believe in their creed. How am I thus different from the lowliest believer in a god or gods he cannot see?
