What you just communicated needs to be told and repeated to the masses until every person hears and understands this.
I believe that if the people on the street actually knew how and what we use (we..as in humankind)to collect the data that describes our physical universe and existence, they wouldn't believe a single thing the "scientific" community tells them. The modeling (practically all of it...pick your discipline) is flawed to the point that the data is literally unusable in an honest way. That doesn't mean that it isn't used by the "scientific community" (whatever that means). It is used...in a ridiculously dishonest way...to steal money from the US government in the form of grants. The most current harmful, and embarrassing misuse of this flawed data is the worlwide hysteria over Global Warming. Global Warming has become a religious arguement. It has no basis in reality, science, fact, or modern research. But people the world over (think Kyoto Protocol) believe that not only is the Earth getting warmer and that the phenomenon isn't cyclical, but that we (humans) not only caused it, but that we can somehow stop it and/or reverse it. Amazing arrogance...
Funnily, (but based on arrogance also) the same people (sheeple) who parrott the insanity that is Global Warming, also believe that it is stupid for other people to believe in a God. Objectively consider this for a few minutes....
