No one denies that the senses are unreliable. But that does not discredit science. Science has learned to work around that flaw by repeating experiments. refining measurements and confirming or disconfirming the work of others. Besides, there is the simple fact that science works. Anomalies in the data are potential new discoveries or an indication that something is wrong with the instrumentation. Scientists do not ignore the anomalies, but try to discover their causes, in other words they do more science. Have you ever heard of a religion doing that?
Just thought I'd inform of an interesting development. I think we are on the brink of such a revolution. I've been following a particular issue (termed "voodoo neuroscience") that has been carrying on for the past two years. An acquaintance of mine writes the British Psychological Society's Research Digest blog, and has this (2009) summary article of the affair: Do You Do Voodoo?
Much has been written on the affair since then, of course, with much bickering on all sides of the camps on the 'correctness' of this apparant exposure. Now a new paper has been published that highlights a deeper issue: Voodoo Correlations Are Everywhere. Basically we are witnessing a massive exposure of bias discovered in science and discovered by scientists themselves. Methinks a revolution is afoot! All glories to scientific self-correction!
