Does society trust science?

The globe has become highly reliant on science, more so than ever in history. However, some may say that they no longer trust science due to the varied journals that have promoted material in favor of certain companies or have undoubtedly created a double standard with certain experiments negating the same experiment completed by another University. On the other hand, society may be more trusting of science due to the technological advancements of the previous century dawning a new decade in theoretical physics and the development of consumerism.

Brain washing in Government run schools

Books are decided on and purchased by government employees with government agendas. People have handed their children over to government nannies to be raised as early as 4 years old (Pre-K programs across the U.S.). Students are kept in schools until they are 18, providing a clear unobstructed initiation into the government agenda based on the science that is considered fact when half of it is theory. Some science is pure and necessary, but not everything can be explained by science, if it is theory it must be taught as theory, without a liberal wink.

Too many wasters

At one time we believed the Earth was flat, science demonstrated otherwise. The very fact that medicine exists owes all thanks to science, if you ever take any medicine, you're trusting science.
This can go as far as to say any type of technology whether it be electronic or otherwise exists because of the processes of science. Specifically the scientific method, even before it had a name it was in the works.

Far too many taxpayer funded scientists are trying to justify their jobs by claiming rediculous statements. Most of their so called analysis are pie in the sky or already discovered by the layman years ago.
