Science is a poor Philosophy
It has always struck me that we believe in science too much.
I've spent most of my adult life trying to understand what science has discovered. But along the way I've learned, from Gödel, Wittgenstein and others, that the proclivity of science to systematize and classify observations of nature is not pursuit of the truth. Instead it is a deception that these structures appear to be the truths of nature. When, instead, they are merely one of many possible ways of explaining what we observe in nature.
Ok, so what? But how many school children; How many people who make important decisions everyday are duped into believing that the world is deterministic? Mathematica Principia was a stupid idea thought up by some of the brightest humans in science! But that lesson still has not been learned by most of the rest of the world. Worse yet, most people who go to college to study science are not learning it either.
Philosophy is a pursuit of understanding that has no preconceived solution. Whereas science seems to be a lifelong pursuit to put nature into a box; label it and put it on a shelf. So it seems a cruel joke that people of science laugh at philosophy. When science is the real joke, it just has a punch line they fail to comprehend.
