I'm not sure...
| So would arrogance be measured by whether a scientist would or would not take the time to explain the math? I'm curious as to what you would like to change. |
Measuring arrogance would take some research on how to go about it. One method would be to have ignorant people ask scientists questions and then ask why or why not they were not satisfied with the answer. A strong enough sample would at the very least give some direction to that end.
But the question proposed involves assuming funding has declkined for lack of interest, and the reason for a lack of interest is different for some than others.
That was why I started the debate. I know that many religions have found science to be an enemy of their 'faith' but that alone should not account for the lack of interest... But most probably its lack of access into the science world without massive resources for the individual, either the spending of debt for schooling, or what have you.
I'm sure there are a lot of reasons for the decline, but I'm not sure of what to examine first, or how to compile a list of reasons without other peoples input.
Edited by tesla, : forgot to add the answer to the question quoted.
Edited by tesla, : bad sentence.
