A Look At: Scientism
Scientism is the false and primarily atheistic belief that the scientific method has no limits and can be successfully applied to all aspects of life. A recent example is COVID-19 and Dr. Fauci's failed approach to it. Scientism supported "gain-of-function" research to develop the virus that reportedly killed more than 5 million people.
Conservatives oppose scientism, as it misleads people, creates deadly dangers (like man-made viruses), and devalues an individual belief in God and religious principles. "In the modern world, people will believe almost anything if it is dressed up in the name of science," observed C.S. Lewis.

“I am for doing good to the poor, but...I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it.

And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.”
― Benjamin Franklin
