The Scientific Method: How do we know what is true?

The conclusion reads:

"Human thought is subjective and fallible. Cultural norms and assumptions disrupt serious attempts to search for truth. The scientific method minimizes Human error. [...] Science is revolutionary because it accepts new facts, new evidence and new thought. New knowledge acquired from the scientific method frequently changes society with technology and ideas. It is refreshing, challenging and above all the scientific method continues to dynamically improve its description of the world."

Sections include text on the shortcomings of the scientific method (i.e., the scientists themselves), and text on why scientific "theories" are better than proclaimed "facts".

Isn't Skeptical Inquirer an awesome magazine! The whole Centre for Inquiry/Transnational and all its subsidiaries and fellows is a force for good in the world!

(Er, sorry about the year-long delay in this response!)
