No, I personally do not need to explain anything. In this topic,

I believe you Susan! It is our job to educate you.

I cannot think of any reason why anyone would think that the scientific method was not vitally important.

I think you are confusing science facts with facts about scientific methods. I think people want the science much more than the methods.

Objective facts need to be distinguished from subjective ones.

I suggest that all objective facts were at one time subjective facts. I also think that objective facts lose that status when they are exchanged between human minds. Einstein’s “Special Theory of Relativity” was once a set of ideas in his mind, which he organized, put into some mathematics, written up and published, readers of this paper thought about his ideas (subjective while being thought by a reader) and critiqued them. Their objective status was established by the agreement between human subjects.

So, I think of objective facts as important productions of the human imagination. They would not exist, however, with out human subjects like you and me, and scientists , artists, theologians and philosophers.

I certainly would not step foot in a plane if I did not know there were a vast number of objective facts involved!!

Well, this is a general belief and an assumption as well. How would you objectively know that the builders or maintenance workers didn’t skimp on taking care of that plane?
