Abusing the words/method of science without understanding or properly meaning them.
Science is a process and these people are perverting it.
Bears repeating ad nauseum;
“However, a single observation has the potential to invalidate a hypothesis, and even an entire theory.”
e.g. If I say there are ONLY red marbles in that black mystery bag and you pull out a blue one, I don’t get to claim it’s your ‘experience’ that makes it blue and they’re all still red. Burden of proof. Negative evidence. Nanometres. These are things.
It is almost unheard of for true science to settle philosophical disputes, which are a part of the Method themselves. As for political, need I say? Unless there is a falsifiable claim, rigorously tested, get out of here.
