Science doesn’t need your belief

By stating science as a matter of belief or faith one shifts the empirical to the subjective, opening the indisputable to the option for disagreement.

In wanting to profess commitment people unwittingly democratize (shift into the realm of popularity) and politicize science’s process into its opposite: a platform for affirmative declaration instead of contingent falsification.

Science does not need your belief. Instead, it is actively harmed by the adherent’s myopic misunderstanding, like most religions.
