Theory of Knowledge
Do We Have To Think Scientifically In Order To Find The Truth?
In the past it has primarily been the role of religion to explain the world around us, in the 20th Century science seems to have taken religions place as the main explanation for many people. The rise in belief of science has led to scientists being expected by the public to be advocates of the truth. In recent cases the desire for knowledge into possible effects on human health, such as the BSE crisis or the levels of radiation from mobile phones, has led to the public demanding the truth. Truth can also be applied to information, when can information be accepted as true?
Thinking scientifically is the ability to analyse measurements and observations and to understand these by using logical thought and reason, often with an absence of emotion. This can cause problems as an absence of emotion can often lead to ethical problems, such as the development of methods of breeding dangerous biological weapons, if ethics were considered beforehand these would not be developed as they have no real use apart from as weapons of mass destruction.
