The Word LogoImage via Wikipedia
Is science the sole or primary arbiter of what is real and true?

Several contributors to the Ball Bounces seem to think so.  There's a term for this view. It is called scientism.

Good definition of scientism here.

Under scientism, you could never be sure that your mother loved you, because love does not submit itself to scientific detection and analysis.  All we can observe are its effects.

Ultimate truth is not merely molecular; it is personal and moral.

In the beginning was the Word.
