Well, Kystar, if your admin knows what he's talking about then medicine isn't as reliant on science as you claim it is. And even if that isn't true, you're taking "observational science" to mean much more than it does. Every science requires observations, so if every science that required observation was observational science, then there would just be 1 aspect of science.
Scientists can be carried away by their own studies
That's something we can agree on, if not a bit of an understatement.
but they have made great strides in amassing knowledge that helps us.
That's true. Where would we be, as a civilization, if we didn't have nukes, steroids, or breast implants? It would truly be a sad land to live in.
Would you have the creature comforts of your current life if it weren't for science trying to find a way to make life better?
No. There would be a great deal of luxuries that we wouldn't enjoy today. I mean, food would be way more expensive, because scientists wouldn't have been able to genetically alter our foods into mutated super-foods.
Would our food be safe? Our water drinkable?
Nope. Sure wouldn't. If it wasn't for the marvels of science, we'd all be dead. You know why all those people who lived before the marvels of science are dead? because they didn't have the marvels of science! It doesn't matter that the Jews had laws governing what and how they could eat to protect them from disease, because they all still died, right? Oh, thank you powerful science for saving humanity!
Would that computer you are posting this on exist if there weren't people interested in science? NO!
You're right. If it wasn't for the invention of air conditioners, we wouldn't have computers. Its wonderful how science keeps providing us reasons to stay inside, sit our asses down, and just get fat. Wonderful stuff!
