Science: objective or subjective?

Herman C. Vermeulen

Where does the border lie between objective and subjective?
One of the things we expect from science is objectivity; discoveries made and explanations given by the scientific community ought not to be colored by personal interpretations.
Many conclusions made by the scientific community have played a very important role in our society; very often they have dictated our way of living and even more important they have influenced how we have to behave morally.
If we expect that the scientists are objective is not too much demanded of the scientific community. Before we start to live in accordance with scientific conclusions we need to ask ourselves how objective they are.This being said, Science is still one of the most objective disciplines in our society and Scientific discoveries very often support Theosophical teachings.
