Do you ever hear about the problems with “the scientific method” well if never heard about it you might want to stay tuned. For many scientists, the effect is especially troubling because of what it exposes about the scientific process. If replication is what separates the rigor of science from the squishiness of pseudoscience, where do we put all these rigorously validated findings that can no longer be proved? Which results should we believe? Francis Bacon, the early-modern philosopher and pioneer of the scientific method, once declared that experiments were essential, because they allowed us to “put nature to the question. But it appears that nature often gives us different answers. Now a man named Gary Garber says the term “scientific method,” he explains, isn’t even something scientists themselves came up with. It was invented by historians and philosophers of science during the last century to make sense of how science works. Unfortunately, he says, the term is usually interpreted to mean there is only one, step-by-step approach to science. In fact there is many ways to find the answer to something and people can find or choose a way to find the answer they are looking for. If you don’t believe you might want to know that Physicists are scientists who study how particles such as electrons, ions and protons behave. Geologists, scientists who study the history of Earth as recorded in rocks, won’t necessarily do experiments and both of these two types of scientists that might not follow the method at all most of the time. Even thou that some teachers tell and show why scientific method is important by doing labs and writhing about what happens in the labs is not always showing or expanding about the scientific method. Now you know about the problems will you stay tune to find out what I think about the scientific method?
I feel the scientific method can be a myth or a real process that might have problems that scientist might have to fix because by me reading article I have to say that I believe that it has problems some times that doesn’t make sense. But if you still don’t believe try finding what happens to water if you compress it more and more and more… (It can’t just disappear); with the science method. Also I would like to help to prove the method is real or help fix the method’s problems. I agree with the author’s writing because base on what the author wrote is or may be fun to experiment with the scientific method in different labs to test if it is true. I found interesting that the upside is scientists also recognize something that few students do: Mistakes and unexpected results can be blessings in disguise. Also I found interesting that three times a year, Lollie Garay and her middle school students at the Redd School in Houston storm onto a southern Texas beach and there, this science teacher and her class collect seawater samples to understand how human actions affect local water.
