Agreed. Some of the opinions I hear against Science are simply mind boggling.

This is a systemic and cultural problem.

If a society does not reward and, in fact, punishes science (disregard disincents it), there is no reason to expect it.

Yes, science requires a couple of actors before it can be successful -
  1. Someone capable and willing to perform science
  2. Someone willing to listen to and act on the results

In my experience, a lack of the latter is at least as common as a lack of the former. But my sample may be biased.

Not if nobody is capable and willing to apply it.

Ignorance, stupidity and poor training are powerful foes.

Fortunately, rational science can offer real results.

Data warehouses are essentially databases biased for particular data applications and against others. They are rooted in poor database foundation knowledge and logical-physical confusion.
Analysts should avoid relying on techniques that undermine the soundness of database design.
The emphasis on coding in place of education obscures and disregards the core practical objective of database management to minimize programming.
Those delving into data science have to learn the important difference between prediction and explanation, as we discovered in post-election discussions and finger-pointing.
Don't be fooled by the promises that denormalization in data management will provide performance gains at no cost. The real cost will be at the expense of analytics.
