"Science is more than a body of knowledge. It’s a way of thinking. A way of skeptically interrogating the universe with a fine understanding of human fallibility. If, if we are not able to ask skepticle questions, to interrogate those who tell us that something is true, to be skeptical of those in authority – then we’re up for grabs for the next charlatan, political or religious, who comes ambling along." ~ Carl Sagan
Albert Einstein put it this way "The important thing is not to stop questioning." and Richard Feynman
"I would rather have questions that can't be answered than answers that can't be questioned."
Science is not about conforming or reaching unanimous agreement but rather it is about questioning. Be a skeptic. Follow the data to form a hypothesis and then question the hypothesis. If the data doesn't fit, change the hypothesis and not the data. Question when you think you've found the answer.
In today's world, it is popular to censor dissent. That isn't science. Many years ago a scientist by the name of Galileo di Vincenzo Bonaiuti de' Galilei was forced by religious authorities to "recant" his proclamation that the Sun and not the Earth was the center of our universe. Science lost to public opinion.
Today the world has a lot of controversial "science" such as Climate change, Covid19 issues, genetic engineering, life beyond Earth and more.
"Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is to not stop questioning." ~ Einstein
but also remember "The search for truth is more precious than its possession." ~ Einstein and ""Believe those who are seeking the truth. Doubt those who find it." -Andre Gide
