Why Is the Scientific Method Important?

The above are all problems and involve a huge number of decisions.

The scientific method is also:

The Complete Method of Creative Problem Solving and Decision Making for All Fields
It is of great national importance that the scientific method, which is not just for scientists but is really a general problem solving method for everyone, be applied to the above problems by all concerned.

Why Use the Scientific Method?

Centuries of study, debate, and experimentation has established that the best of all methods of obtaining and originating reliable knowledge in all fields is the scientific method. Therefore, for all of the above problems of competitiveness in all areas, the scientific method is the guide to the mental activities and systems needed to solve the complex competitiveness problems.

The alternatives of using chance, partial or inferior methods, or haphazardness in attempting to solve these complex problems risks the danger of mediocrity. The threat to our competitiveness is well recognized. However, the harm from our inadequate education in and use of the scientific method is not recognized.

Here are some of the things that are happening in recognizing the dangers to America’s competitiveness:

American Competitiveness Initiative - Announced by President George W. Bush on February 2nd, 2006.

Competitiveness Bill to Aid Math, Science Is Signed by President - Reported in the August 15, 2007 issue of Education Week. This is an educational effort.

U.S. Dominance in Science at Risk - Article in the January 16th, 2008 edition of the New York Times by Cornelia Dean.

CEO Summit – 2008 – 10th Annual to Be Held May 14th, 2009 - Leading the Global Enterprise: Decision at the Top.
