The Scientific Method and It’s End
The Scientific Method has been the gold standard for research for over a hundred years. The idea is to carefully design your experiment to eliminate as many variables as possible. Then when you make changes in the things you know; you can end up with predictable and repeatable results.
This system works amazingly well for all sorts of grade school and high school experiments. It even works pretty well with many cooking recipes. But as the experiments become more complicated, even the scientists had to modify their methods in order to verify their research.
