The Supremacy Of Scientism: Is Science The Only Legitimate Method Of Gaining Knowledge? - Mysterious Universe

Philosophy as Hawking, Nye, Tyson knew it is dead, since philosophy's evolved into something new. To presume philosophy as stagnant and static is a reflection upon its critics rather than the field. Does the same go for UFOlogy? Back in the 1950's our skies were abuzz with saucers and randy greys with their probes, but contemporary UFOlogy's become an entirely different beast.
