No, you're moronic.
The whole point of science in the first place is that I don't need to trust anyone, I can personally confirm things for myself.
That's the whole point of the scientific method.
An assertion that isn't accompanied with a set of steps that I can use to confirm it for myself it just another myth.
Science is what allows one man alone to present an assertion that a rational actor could embrace even though there is a consensus that he is wrong.
Science is what allows one man alone to assert that the earth revolves around the sun and not the other way around, and have people embrace this assertion and make choices that improve their chance to survive and thrive, despite there being consensus that he is wrong.
Anyone who thinks "scientific consensus" means anything is a grade a moron.
