Do you think the label “unscientific” has become an overused word that has had it’s original meaning distorted?

There are groupthinks of mainstream society who are quick to dismiss anything they consider “unscientific” only because it doesn’t come from a mainstream source. These groupthink folks don’t have any valid counter arguments except for a barrage of fallacies yet still resort to using the simple word “unscientific” to dismiss something without even giving a valid reason why they are skeptical.

You often see this in debates, a lot of these pseudo-intellectuals like to argue from authority by citing all sorts of “credible sources” but whenever an alternative source that contradicts the pseudo intellectual’s source is proposed, the pseudo-intellectual is quick to label it “unscientific”.

Furthermore, people like to attach the “unscientific” label to anything they don’t understand or can’t be explained at the moment. Only for their skepticism to be debunked as more information on the subject is gradually acquired.

🤔 It seems I struck a nerve. But then again the truth is a hard pill to swallow.

I think the biggest misconception about this is how people assume that experts only come from the mainstream, while disregarding the fact that there are plenty of experts with valid credentials that aren’t mainstream.
