Particular examples are not needed to talk about the method - the scientific method.
This statement means that statements of method are somehow different from scientific statements or hypotheses. That is, statements about scientific methods are not science, they are philosophical statements, actually statements of value. Susan, to me, your OP is an argument for the scientific method as being superior to other methods in producing objective facts.
I am suggesting that the argument is a argument over values not science per se. You are philosophizing here.
