That question is stupid, you're stupid. Why does OP shitpost 2deep4u threads on /sci/ to be edgy? Now that's a question.

You don't understand? Then I think, sir, you are the stupid one.

Because science is not a sentient entity, you dimwit.

>>6641354
Saying sir doesn't make you sound smart. Science is not a person or an organization. Politics decide how science is used in the national and international level. War, medicine, entertainment, all applications of science funded by government or private entities, not ''science''. As if its a secret club of smart bourgeois who exploit humans as mere resources. Please kill yourself, not joking, you shouldn't even be alive in nature, you only made it this far because of SCIENCE.

What's ironic is, scientists are the first to jump up and take credit for the "advancement of technology"---but when human prosperity is brought up, they call it stupid and avoid conversation.

>Science (from Latin scientia, meaning "knowledge"[1]) is a systematic enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about the universe.[2][3] In an older and closely related meaning, "science" also refers to a body of knowledge itself, of the type that can be rationally explained and reliably applied. A practitioner of science is known as a scientist.

Yes, that's the definition, but for what reasons do we study the universe? Why do we search for knowledge? The answer to this question, given by a scientist, is, 'politicians and their funding'. The natural answer would be, "perpetual humanity". If after your observation you forget to predict that the waste we produce will one day cause a lot of suffering for future humanity, primarily children, then you're not doing science properly.

Science is also a body of knowledge, but this body of knowledge is biased toward politicians desires, and not perpetual humanity. I'll ask again, why do we seek knowledge of the universe? And why do we want to understand it? For what reasons? Vision is the process of the eyes, I could say, "why does your vision not care about the prosperity of humanity?" and it makes sense. The process is accompanied by the processors. Science is the process of analysis, what I'm asking is, why isn't your analysis for the prosperity of humanity?

You usually request government to dedicate certain part of federal reserve to your research, wait until approval and perform the said research. What's wrong with it?
You can use alternative forms of funding in case of disapproval but good luck with that, your issue is rarely relevant enough to gain enough public interest.
Moreover, you're not forced to do a specific research just due to governmental request - it's all voluntary, and if you bring some silly argument like "wage slavery" then you are an idiot.

Yes it does, because it has a source. You can see waste happening all around you, why on Earth don't your eyes care about this when they see it? This makes sense. Why on Earth doesn't science, when it observes the natural world, care about the waste output it discovers? Why does it move so quickly onto other, less-important things. This is a matter of life or death, you must be a pretty shit scientist if you overlooked this major problem. This is the behaviour of the natural world, so why haven't scientists got on the case to prevent the suffering of future humanity, which are the ones affected by our plunder of the Earth?

Why on Earth do you think scientists don't? There's in fact an entire branch of science devoted to exactly that. It's called environmental science.

Thank you for the serious response. Who decides this? Was a question that was answered by you on the off-hand. You said that, by request, politicians lend you money, but I'm sure they won't give you money if it doesn't bring them some kind of profit. You're still a slave... It's just a mutually-agreed slavery, no whips or shackles needed.

I don't agree with your answer for why you should do science. Personal achievement, why? It does nothing but make you serve as a memory, it's increasing your fame, but doing nothing for the world. We want to do science to increase our understanding, keyword OUR. "We" are a MAJOR part of science. Why would WE not UNDERSTAND the fact that we're killing ourselves? And why is this knowledge not important?

Isn't slavery by definition something you DON'T agree to? If you agree to do something, that's the opposite of slavery.

Because the moment we start saying science should be done for so-and-so reason, you are introducing biases. Science should, first and foremost, be done for the sake of science. Scientists should strive to do science well. And when that happens humanity prospers as a result,

But your eyes are part of a sentient being, so they can care. Why would you look at one thing and not the other, either because you cared more about it, or you had to. Why don't you care when your eyes see waste output. Why don't scientists care, when your analysis reaches the conclusion that future humanity will perish due to waste output in a much shorter time period than was originally intended? Why don't scientists care about humanities prosperity when they conduct science? Why doesn't science care about Humanity's prosperity?

Depending on the state we live in. I've seen a lot of research from Scandinavia concerning cultural and social issues which in no real way could have possibly profited the state.
Moreover, if managed properly, the primarily purpose of political and scientific activity is usually philanthropy.
You can also request aid from private foundation if you disagree with political proposals if interests of you both match, or attain the maximal amount of freedom using crowdsourcing.

Maslow hierarchy of needs.

More nuclear waste producing plants are built, more vehicles and technologies are made, etc. A couple of wind farms doesn't help enough.

It isn't, but preventing major waste producers from producing waste is a terrifically bad idea from economical standpoint which would cost the economical state of millions of people - look at what EU "green" policies did when they have lasted, for example.
