I apologize if my statement seems improper. my only point really is that science is concerned with results. science is not concerned with whether or not it is right or wrong to lie or deceive and science can very possible put such things to use as tools if they can achieve results. there is certainly such thing as ethics among the scientific community but the ethics is not a science in and of itself.
Science is all about deception just as well as everything else including results. If I were selling a product and only told you the side which was beneficial to me, then you could be fooled because I didn't tell you all about it or only the side of it that is considered positive. Science is the study of the universe in a way which is beneficial to us. We're all pushing an agenda. There's always more than one side or dimension to anything insofar as we can observe and we just happen to seek the side beneficial to us.
Truth and deception are in a gray, gooey ball. They intermingle quite often. It's like taking two colors of clay and binding the two. You can't separate them as fine as you think. That line that we try to insert between the two isn't really there. Part of being an adult is finally realizing it's a gray world and admitting it is but knowing where to draw the line in your mind for the benefit of happiness and healthiness. Some of us just don't realize it or want to admit it because it may not necessarily beneficial to us and we may have a hard time drawing those lines if we actually realized there were none. We're spoonfed those lines by society and some of us just don't want to think for ourselves. We take the same old moldy views and regurgitate them without thinking twice about them.
We live off of fear and we thrive giving it to others. We say, "no, it's not so" when faced with something new and scary. But chances are, a straight no is rarely true. Chances are, there is probably at least some yes mixed in with it. We usually want to view the world in a simple, binary view. It's either yes, or no, on or off. It's man's nature to compress information in the simplest form to work with. But reality is much different. There's more dimensions, ugliness, and blur to this world than see and would want to see. It's time we grew up, all of us adults, and stop finding differences and realizing commonalities.
If advancement is what we're after, I don't see us advancing much with such a binary view of the world and so much fighting going on all over.
