reliable  or  always subject to correction?.
What's the difference between being 100% certain and 99.99999% certain?

          The  Troubles  with  Science
by Henry Bauer;  published in July 2001 by Paraview Press
Science  is  not  done  by  "the scientific method"

Scientific  theories are  not  scientific  knowledge

Science has influenced our culture much more via ideas
                                          than by leading to technology
Reviewers have said:
I recommend this book highly for adults and students who wish to examine the creativity and analyticity of scientific thinking. the meaning of science, how science really works, and the scientific method and its uses and abuses are discussed in a highly stimulating manner.  the book can be used as a talking point to stimulate creative discussions on the scientific method and its implications (Nathan S. Washton in Science Books & Films)
intellectually rewarding and generally well-written. The main virtues are to stimulate new kinds of thinking about definitions, methods, and social relations in and around the sciences. I applaud the overall scholarship and spirit of [this book] (Eugene F. Mallove in Infinite Energy)
