Something occurred to me, and it has in the past, but I couldn't isolate it enough to vocalize the idea, but I believe I have. Science is founded on the belief that a theory or hypothesis is formulated, tested, and proved or disproved, correct? But I quite frequently see attitudes which contradict this. Of course they always revolve around contraversial "science fiction" ideals, such as UFO's and time travel. The gut reaction of most people is that ideas such as these are fiction and made up, but when examined from a scientific perspective they are "inconclusive". But I've witnessed people who claim to examine things from a purely scientific perspective as "garbage" without precursory examination of the evidence, or any type of investigation. I'm now singling any one person or even topic out, and I realize that every "story" or "theory" that pops up can't be investigated to the fullest due to time limitations. But have been so inundated as a society by radical idealology and "pop culture" that even science has taken on a jaded, skeptical point of view on anything not considered mainstream? It just seems to be the prevailing attitude from what I've observed. Any insights into this?
