Is it true that science is never ever wrong about anything?


Just that sometimes scientists speak in allegory or figurative speech, so when we find that a scientific theory doesn’t match the data, then the theroy isn’t wrong, it’s just ‘figurative’…right?

Allegory has no place in science.

Science isn’t an opinion or a theory, it’s a way of logic that people follow, that explains what’s life and the universe about while living it. The Bible is a way to explain the same things, but when you believe in it, you just blindly trust what’s written. Science began when things were being written and preserved as data. Meaning, science isn’t something you can blindly rely on, it’s something that helps you research and advance over the many years of ones existence.

So the point is?
If you read a holy book and come out with an alternative to laptops and internet based on it Id say science is useless.

YEA Some the theories might be wrong that’s why its called a theory.

Of course Science is frequently wrong. It goes on by trial and error.
New discoveries frequently oblige scientists to correct their theories.
But that is just the greatness of Science. There are no dogmas, and any theory is subject to revision and improvement. Maybe they were true until the field of application became wider because of new discoveries.

Science is the best explanation at the time.

When a better explanation comes about it replaces the old one.

For example, there used to be a belief that the were four elements, air, fire, water and earth, we now know this to be untrue so scientists no longer make this claim.

Pretty much the opposite to religion.

No.
Actually, what you describe is the opposite of science. It’s belief without evidence or reason.
One of the explicit conditions that a scientific theory *must* have is that it be falsifiable. If it cannot be proven wrong, then it is, by definition, not a valid scientific theory.

I think this scientist is wrong
The human race will one day split into two separate species, an attractive, intelligent ruling elite and an underclass of dim-witted, ugly goblin-like creatures, according to a top scientist. 100,000 years into the future, sexual selection could mean that two distinct breeds of human will have developed. The alarming prediction comes from evolutionary theorist Oliver Curry from the London School of Economics, who says that the human race will have reached its physical peak by the year 3000.

Quite the opposite.

Science continually needs correction.

In most cases, scientists are required not only to admit that they might be wrong but to actually provide a quantitative estimate of the probability that they might be wrong.

You’re talking through your hat.

If you are unsure of how the scientific method works, you should post your question in the science section.

Silly children often ask such questions, when we all know that only fairy followers believe that their fairy can do no wrong. To pretend that science can never be wrong is to project upon science their silly fairy fantasies.
