What is /sci/'s opinion on scientism

>> No.10581172

/sci/ is 98% scientism.
I'm part of the remaining 2%, and I can't begin to describe how disgusting this place is to me.

"scientism" is anti-science

Scientism is sexist and racist

I assume your referring to the discrimination of peoples based on their field of science. I think it's fine. Some sciences suck and so do the people who work with them.

>> No.10581265

The belief that "Science," as an abstract entity, is a universal source of truth and meaning, and a comprehensive belief system.

Best religion. It works until it doesn't.

People who think like that don't get far

>> No.10581282

It's blatantly false given that science cannot answer e.g. mathematical, ethical, aesthetic questions.

>> No.10581477


False. There is no corner of this universe too far for science to investigate.

rationalism is equivalent to scientism because science is rationality

I'm sure if you zoom in enough on a number you can empirically verify the existence of math!

Rationality is the subset of science that doesn't involve forming new ideas to test interesting hypotheses or rechecking data to determine methodological errors.

High quality bait my fellow bugman, I'm sure they'll never catch on to your ruse!

Scientism is based and redpilled.

>> No.10581756

scientism is another fictitious concept invented by /pol/tard godfags and /x/schizo newagers to strawman scientists; similar to “cultural marxism” (pol) or “academics are in a huge conspiracy to promote the NWO” (x)

It's the proposition you get from anti-social autists when the try to imagine a world where their status might be a little bit elevated, without knowledge of or through for human interaction otherwise.
It's cringe

/x/ anon here, can confirm this reasoning tactic.

Post this as many times as you like, it’s still not true.

>> No.10581829

Here’s a good rule of thumb: if it’s a fact it’s science, if it’s not a fact it’s not science and it’s probably bullshit.


>> No.10581832

how is it not true. because you can cite some definition of “scientism” that goes back 150 years and is irrelevant to the modern day shitposter usage?

It's a disgrace

>> No.10581849

Pretty silly considering there is and never will be a universal source of truth and meaning. A comprehensive belief system could in theory exist but it'd still be 99.99% imaginary like every belief system currently in existence.

Define science.
Science imo is the application of the scientific theory. That basically means that if you can quantify and record it, you can test it via scientific means.

Literally not a single person on 4chan knows enough about animal mating systems to comment on them. The number of times I've seen some chuckle fuck extrapolate bird mating systems to people on this site and totally disregard life history is obnoxious.

Hey guys. Creator of the cosmos here. Just want to weigh in with my own perspective.

I created reality. Logic is optional. I use it primarily to explore human perspective. Any model is true if I want it to be. The thermodynamic concept of a closed cosmic system is a convenient excuse for me to exercise plausible deniability. I can obviously apply it when, where, and however I please.
