Scientism

Scientism is the worldview which holds that only science is capable of making meaningful statements about all phenomena. It is a philosophical extension of materialism and logical positivism. Unlike science, scientism is a belief system with no rational basis which depends entirely on the faith of its adherents.

McScientist: Any individual who regularly engages in practices, speech or ideology which espouses the worldview of scientism. As in, scientism is to science what fast food is to hamburgers.

At one point ScientismCentral.com was a full time project. But as time went on the page began to get neglected and eventually I lost the domain and had to change to website to ScientismCentral.org

In the interest of simplifying things I will be in the process of moving all of that content here to be archived and will eventually probably close SC.org down. Here is the original scientism content I produced during that time.
