Yes, which is why I say that science is necessary but not sufficient. If an alien lands on the White House lawn and a Zeblork steps out of a plasma-craft gift to mankind; as a welcome of mankind into the local Federation - this is not a discovery of science. This is revelatory (a meteor with microbe fossils on it would do the same thing). That is why I say that science (a method) is necessary but not sufficient. The irony exists in that much of what we regard as 'the body of science' is revelatory in origin, and much of what we regard as 'pseudoscience' stems from 'incremental hypothesis in risk inquiry resolved by inference driven from observation and critical path of prior art'. The distinguishing factor is in its utilization of probative, over simply reliable, data.
but isn't science now, and hasn't it always been, a social construct? A strange brew of cultural myth, social conditioning, human cognition limitations, and an array of liars, cheats, and psychopaths combined with the really hard job of following the scientific method.
for example, it seems to me that the best evidence suggests that aliens have already "landed on the White House lawn" it's just a matter of making them visible to those who won't see. as I've discussed many times on the show, I think the December 2017 New York Times UFO roll out is an example of this. they're trying to tell everybody "look aliens have landed on the White House lawn," but no one listened. could "science" help understand what's going on re "aliens"? sure... (Vallee's materials analysis immediately comes to mind) but this just won't happen.
worse yet, there are all sorts of other confounding variables. for example, are we not able to see because there is a technology at play that has some control over memory? as strange as this sounds it's a common feature of of many who had an ET contact experience. you'll hear more about this in my upcoming interview with Kevin Day the Navy Seaman who witness one of the largest UFO encounters in history... but you'll also run across that time and time again with all sorts of folks who have had ET contact experience. and that's not even getting into tulpa thing and the idea that reality is a thought-form we're continuously creating
