Wikiquote Censorship

A quote from Carl Sagan: "Science is much more than a body of knowledge. It is a way of thinking", from his article "Why We Need To Understand Science" in The Skeptical Inquirer Vol. 14, Issue 3 (Spring 1990)
(The opinion below was censured from Carl Sagan's Discussion page in Wikiquote, at their own risk. Censorship leads to dictatorship. Beware of censorship, because our world depends on our deeds, and these on our ideas.)
For me, here Carl Sagan is unconsciously admitting that "Science" is a way of thinking, that is, an ideology, and the use of the verb Understand in the title of the article is an euphemism to say that we need to forcibly agree to this manipulated, authoritarian, twisted ideology, whose dogma is imposed through "scientific" bullying. Science's "Skeptical" way of thinking arbitrarily accepts or rejects evidence to maintain the status quo, it arbitrarily dictates what is and what is not a fact. So, not only "Science" is a way of thinking, it is a wrong way of thinking, or else it would have solved humanity's problems, what obviously has not. And this is because, as, according to Alice Calaprice in The New Quotable Einstein (2005), Albert Einstein would have said, "The world we have created today as a result of our thinking thus far has problems which cannot be solved by thinking the way we thought when we created them" (unsourced). Another unsourced variant is "The world we have created is a product of our thinking; it cannot be changed without changing our thinking." In other words, the world that we have today is the result of our deeds, which are consequence or our ideas, or our ideology. If we want to really improve our world, this kind of "Science" is clearly not the way.

Science is a technique, in that it is a methodology.
