You must be a janitor there. Science has been corrupted by politics, ideology, and economics from day one.

The vast majority of scientists cannot afford the expensive educations, equipment and facilities they must have (on TOP of making a living.). These are BIG bucks. And if the scientists don't find what the people who are putting up the bucks (almost always large corruptions, directly and indirectly) want them to find, they find themselves flipping burgers at McDonalds, and blacklisted to boot.

As for politics, it's almost impossible to seperate it from economics, but I recall reading about all of the scientists who lost their jobs and their reputations in the latter part of the 19th century for insisting that particles smaller than an atom existed.

When was the last time you heard of a scientist winning the Noble Prize for discovering or developing something that hurt a major corporation?

Or a scientist in the employ of a major corporation (the vast majority) who published findings that hurt that corporation's business?

Who funds the major educational institutions? The corporations.
