Yes, There Exists A Scientific Method

ACTUALLY, THERE IS A SCIENTIFIC METHOD. ITS JUST NOT PECULIAR TO SCIENCE. ITS THE UNIVERSAL EPISTEMIC METHOD, BUT ONLY SCIENTISTS PRACTICE IT WITH ANY DILIGENCE.

Just as we can test axiomatic(declarative) systems for consistency dimension-by-dimension;

Say, like:

-> identity(pairing off) -> arithmetic(number), -> geometry(space), -> calculus (motion) -> equlibria (stocastics) ->

And like:

-> length,-> width,-> area,-> volume,-> change,-> motion ->

We can also test theoretic (descriptive) systems, like:

-> Reason, -> Rationalism, -> Logic, -> Empiricism

We can test also each dimension of the entirety of reality:

1 – categorical consistency (identity)
2 – internal consistency (logic)
3 – external consistency (empiricism)
4 – existential possibility (operationalism)
5 – rational possibility (morality)
6 – scope accountability (full accounting, limits, and parsimony)

So there is a scientific method, because scientists are the only ones who use it with any degree of discipline:

“My warranty that I have done due diligence in testing categorical internal and external consistency, existential and rational possibility, and scope accountability.”

If an individual has done due diligence against each dimension it is almost impossible for him to engage in:

1 – error
2 – bias
3 – wishful thinking
4 – suggestion
5 – overloading
6 – obscurantism
7 – pseudoscience
8 – deceit

Given that our information is never complete, and if it is complete we speak in tautology not truth, then we can never know we speak the truth even if we do so. What we can know is that we have done due diligence against speaking falsehood.

That is the best that we can do.

And this is what it means to “Testify”.

And that is what it means to be a member of western civilization: to learn to do such due diligence that whenever you speak, you give testimony. It may not be true but you warranty that you have done your duty not to state a falsehood.
