Because humans are messy, horrible creatures compared to the (relative) cleanliness of science.

Also because science, though clean, isn't fully formed. It likely won't be for a long time, too.
Can we develop a school of science focused on sciencing the fuck out of all societal problems?

We call that sociology and nobody takes it seriously

Hard science is like a sword, and soft science is like fear. You can use both to equally powerful results, but even if your opponent disbelieve your stabs, they will still die.

Yeah but that's soft science. Why not give the homeless jetpacks?

Or do shit like reviving mammoths to stop climate change. I liked that plan.

So, to post something which actually made me go "wtf" today...


I slept for 12 hours last night.


I was up late, like 3 in the morning, but I'm still up by 10 AM when that happens.


When I finally got up it was 3 PM.


I don't know what I did different, but for some ungodly reason I slept for 12 freakin hours.


I feel rested.

Science isn't about WHY. It's about WHY NOT. Why is so much of our science dangerous? Why not marry safe science if you love it so much. In fact, why not invent a special safety door that won't hit you on the butt on the way out, because you are fired.

We all know sociology is never hard, but always flaccid.

On normal internet forums, threads devolve from content into trolling. On Bay12, it's the other way around.

I did a post sometime ago about how there isn't such a thing as soft or hard science. Trying to find it. Will post/edit it in when I do.

We all know sociology is never hard, but always flaccid.
Okay, this was amazing.

EDIT: Found it. Also read the posts that followed.
I'd be tempted to throw psychology and more rigorous branches of sociology in with the hard sciences, honestly
Honestly, having been on both sides (2.5 years in university for computer science before I dropped it for history (1.5 year now)) of the hard vs soft science thing? It's just plain stupid. The distinction is silly, made up by people on both sides who want to feel elitist. You ask a "soft science" scientist about people who are in the "hard" area, and they'll tell you they're all coke-snorting maniacs. You ask a "hard science" scientist about people who are in the "soft" area, and they'll tell you they're all pot-smoking hippies. They're both wrong.

Are there a lot of people in both "sides" who do drugs, both during and after university? Yeah, sure, I see a lot of them on a daily basis. They're all shitty students who will either not graduate, or just barely graduate and become shitty professionals.

All of it is science. All of it can be incredibly good, or incredibly horrible. It depends solely on the intentions of the scientist and whomever else uses the result of the research.

All of that said, fuck international relations students. Bunch of pretentious assholes.
I also reiterate that last line.

Have you ever tried to actually do rigorous sociological experimentation? There's the hard sciences and then there's the fuckhard sciences that let the easymodo scrubs call them soft to keep the former's fragile egos from cracking like an egg.

Can we develop a school of science focused on sciencing the fuck out of all societal problems?
We're working on it. Sometimes it takes a while to roll up a sufficient amount of science to problemfuck with properly effective enthusiasm.

"Hard" sciences also get more prestige and attention 'cuz they're easier to make money out of.
