Re: What Is Comfortable vs What is True.

I perceive science as trying to define reality based only on what it has to work with. There is nothing personal about science.

There's plenty personal things about science - if you're inclined to feel them.

But, more to the point, you're right - science is about defining reality; if you use your personal opinions to affect "the definition of reality" - then you're not really defining reality, are you?

At that point... you're simply making yourself feel better and screw "defining reality."

Which has it's place.

But "defining reality" also has it's place.
