Yes, "force of law" decisions. Make it sound sinister. I have to drive only 35 mph down the street in front of my house because of the FORCE-OF-LAW. I can't buy heroin because of FORCE-OF-LAW. I can't murder somebody because of FORCE-OF-LAW.
Considering that nobody can travel through time to see the future of science, yes, I think that we, as a society, should be making the best possible decisions that we can based on the science of today. Under your logic, there should be no laws, because somebody may be wrong about something, and we won't discover it until far into the future, right?
