Q&A: Is there a framework that can invalidate the scientific method as a reliable way of obtaining knowledge?


YES there is:  The total, implicit, uncritical acceptance of ancient/medieval scriptural/speculative assertions about the nature of the physical world and supernature.

The vast majority of human beings have done this for ages and continue to do so to this day. This should make  scientifically ill-informed and anti-science people quite happy.

As long as everyone benefits from the fruits of science, irrespective of one’s attitude towards science,  it should make scientists also happy.
