Science Trips Over Its Own Feet (Politics)

I have no problem with science sticking with what it is good at. I do, however, have a problem with science is the only answer, or that any other answer is rubbish simply because it does not fit within their materialistic paradigm.-The dis-invitations of highly qualified scientists reported in the first message here is surely a case of the organisers of the conference shooting themselves in the feet. They are stupid as well as blinkered. But this sort of thing happens I'm sure in other fields than science. -What science is good at is solving problems by the application of reason and experiment. Science is the method not the answer. What does it mean to say that science has a "materialistic paradigm"? There are a lot of "immaterial" (i.e. massless) concepts accepted in current science, like probabilities. If telepathy is possible it can surely be scientifically studied. The problem is that hitherto no reliable data, other than mere anecdote, has been verified.
