"science doesn't know everything, but it is the only reasonable basis of knowledge that we have. That is why it is so important.“ The who says? The cabaret artist Dieter Nuhr said to Consist in an audio message, to him, the German research Foundation (DFG) to decide for the campaign "DFG 2020 For the Knowledge of" your hundred-year-old had asked.
science is the way to knowledge, says Nuhr. Knowledge does not mean, "that one is to be a hundred percent sure, but that one has enough facts to have a reasoned opinion". Science also meant "that the opinion changes when the facts change" – "no doctrine of salvation, not a Religion, the absolute truth will be proclaimed". Who "calls constantly ,Follow the science!'", didn't realise that, obviously.
The statement is likely to be obvious to any Rational. In the Corona-crisis is presented to us, what science is, how difficult and opposition of rich the search for the truth, and that this is a preliminary state of knowledge, the writing in this case, virologists and epidemiologists daily Fort.
