Unlike the use of the scientific method as only one mode of
reaching knowledge, scientism claims that science alone can render
truth about the world and reality. Scientism's single-minded adherence
to only the empirical, or testable, makes it a strictly scientifc
worldview, in much the same way that a Protestant fundamentalism
that rejects science can be seen as a strictly religious worldview.
Scientism sees it necessary to do away with most, if not all,
metaphysical, philosophical, and religious claims, as the truths
they proclaim cannot be apprehended by the scientific method.
In essence, scientism sees science as the absolute and only justifiable
access to the truth.
