 The Ideologies of Science. Simon Schwartzman, 1982
Science planning is today but one of the structures of comprehensive planning that haves been established to try to bring development and modernization to the third world.
Since estimations of the relative size of pure and applied science research budgets and human resources can be derived from the experience of the developed countries, they tended to be used as a rationale for resource allocation in different areas of professional, technical and scientific education.
Thus, planning for science, technology and education was conceived as amenable to incorporation in models for economic development, and neo-liberal economic theories joined Marxism in the attempt to build a bridge between the two poles of the antinomy that contrasted the King Philosopher and the Kingdom of Science.

 Science and the Public: Description
Although the public understanding of science and technology is of central interest to many policy makers and scientists, there is a heavy debate in the scholarly community as to its nature, relevancy, and measurement.
Science and technology policy decisions, despite their high level of technical discourse, are inherently political, involving negotiations and power struggles among various institutions, interest groups and political figures to decide policy outcomes.
Observers of science and religion have long noted a pattern in which the advance of scientific knowledge encroaches on some territory that was formerly left to theology.

 Science Quotes - The Quotations Page
Science is nothing but developed perception, interpreted intent, common sense rounded out and minutely articulated.
Science is facts; just as houses are made of stones, so is science made of facts; but a pile of stones is not a house and a collection of facts is not necessarily science.
In science, 'fact' can only mean 'confirmed to such a degree that it would be perverse to withhold provisional assent.' I suppose that apples might start to rise tomorrow, but the possibility does not merit equal time in physics classrooms.

Therefore be it resolved that because "Creationist Science" has no scientific validity it should not be taught as science, and further, that the AAAS views legislation requiring "Creationist Science" to be taught in public schools as a real and present threat to the integrity of education and the teaching of science, and
Be it further resolved that the AAAS urges citizens, educational authorities, and legislators to oppose the compulsory inclusion in science education curricula of beliefs that are not amenable to the process of scrutiny, testing, and revision that is indispensable to science.
It was passed by the AAAS Board of Directors on 4 January 1982 and submitted to the Council as a proposed joint resolution of the Board and Council.
