"Science is only as true as are the concluders of rational experiments are honest, open minded and competent. Thereafter Science is only as true as it has been faithfully assembled, statistically confirmed, honestly described and truthfully reported. That's a difficult task, especially with huge subjects under scrutiny. Statistics, on the other hand, if collected accurately, assembled rationally, and properly interpreted, can be harder to distort, and easier to validate. Much bullshit is being projected as "Science" these days from our irresponsible Universities and Colleges, much of it to justify political or academic ambitions. In today's America, I for one distrust "Scientific Studies" presented by todays politicized Academia. Way too much data is distorted these days to produce desired end results favorable to Political purpose, and thereafter further distorted by ever anxious media for purposes of their own. Thank God for experience in real events which protects the wise from miscalculation."

Post of the year. The real shame of it is that entire fields of science have been corrupted by money and politics to the point that nothing can be trusted from them.

You really don't know what you are talking about.

You have it exactly backwards, as usual.

You use statistics to apply science, or more properly, the scientific method.

The good thing about science is that it's true whether you believe in it or not.

Yeah, My Dad had guns from when my brother and I were kids. He taught us to use them properly. My Wife's Dad had guns, but he was a Police Chief. My three sons all have guns. I taught them how to use them correctly. Both my Grandfathers had guns, and knew how to use them. And I have guns in my house. So far, nobody in our family has been shot, nor have any of us shot somebody else. But we are prepared, and feel more comfortable because of that. We live in a rural area, but there have been several recent break-ins within 10 miles. After all, we live within 10 miles of Wilmington, DE, called Murder City, USA by Times Magazine. Wilmington has the fourth highest per capita Murder rate in the United States, behind Flint, Michigan, Detroit, and New Orleans. It is a city of 71,000. Our gun stores are doing very well lately.

Actually, Fred, you would be wrong.

People 6 years and older are 3.6 times more likey to be bitten by an unfamiliar dog.

Cause, Setting and ownership analysis of dog bites in Bay County, Florida from 2009 to 2010. Zoo noses Public Health, 2015, vol. 62 #1.
