Why is /lit/ so anti-scientific? Is because you are trying to get a job in a branch of academia that has little to do with science?

Hmmm...kinda makes you feel like a charlatan doesn't it?

This isn't literature. Kindly fuck off

People here aren't anti-science, they are against the modern dogma that science is the be all end all of truth. I'm a scientist myself and agree.

Shut the fuck up lol.

No one is against science, but the logic of "science" shouldn't be extended to the humanities. Doing so is actually the opposite of the empiricism which makes science so successful. I'm saying this as a CS grad

You fucking love science, don't you?

If you do science you'll find out that shit is not as pure as you think. Economics has a nasty habit for unreplicatable experiments, shitty or just plain unexisting meta-analyses, effect sizes smaller than your dad's dick and confidence margins wider than your mum's cunt. And that's with the incredible toolset we have, still. I don't know what happens in psychology and biology and G-d forbid sociology, but my gut tells me it's not much better there.

And everybody here loves maths, probably, so I don't get what are you baiting about.

>> No.10194722

/lit/ isn't anti-scientific in the slightest. If you make a shitty bait at least don't make it even worse by replying like an autistic /b/tard to every post.

Because humanities brainlets are eternally insecure about their intelligence in comparison to STEMlords.

They're not smart enough for science. It's sour grapes. They wish they could score the salaries that science majors do.

If you want to make money you go into buisiness or finance.
If you're one of those retards in engineering courses with 0 interest in science and only in it for the money you need to be shot

Science itself is the most anti-Scientific way of thinking there is.

Nah I don't really like math, it always bored me to death. But being able to solve an mathematical excersise feels like a little orgasm. I'm sure really in-depth academic math most be really interesting, but HS level crap always felt like the complete opposite to thinking.

>getting a job in academia 2017
It‘s not like anybody, who is truly something more than an echo of the past could get a even slightly prominent position in academia in this decade, at least he isn’t just a ghost of his real self.

>> No.10197985

People aren't against science, anymore than they are against Oxygen you retard. science is just a description of the world, however some people believe other things also matter you fucking philistine.
