Where is science taking us? Well, most of us (even most scientist) seem to think science is the absolute truth, and that’s where it’s taking us. That it is a linear concept, and that it’s taking us each time closer to the truth. But as we see in the history of science, many theories that were known to be “true” at its time (even those that concur with experimental data), were proven wrong given the time. So what we know to be “true” today may be far from it. Yes, that is a scary thought, particularly for those who make science, and that’s probably why science is “sold” as the beholder of all truth. But I think we should accustom ourselves to the fact that science is about the journey, not the destination.
