Objectivity

I can understand your offense, but I think skepticism of science is very useful. Objectivity in anything is impossible, and while science comes the closest of all the fields, someone (with money) has to be funding the science, and unless it's an extreme display of altruism, research is only funded when it will benefit a corporation or organization or government by yielding more money or power. The pharmaceutical industry is an example of this.
