Particle science should not be painted with the same brush as economics and climate science.

Both economics and climate science have so much data to contend with, that they are forced to make broad generalizations to make the data understandable and to be able to work with it. But to make those generalizations, major assumptions needs to be made. And you know what they say about assumptions, assumption is the mother of all fuckups. It's the reason so many camps exist in economics and the picture where climate is concerned is so muddled.

But like this post said, particle science is a REAL science, where the main strengths of science, the ability to experiment and draw reliable conclusions from those experiments, can be used. It is extremely difficult to test a theory within the other sciences.
