You're completely right - science can't dictate what should be, only what is. But part of the problem, as I see it, is that there are far too many people who dismiss any science that says things are different from the way they think things should be.

On the flipside, there's far too many people who do the opposite and ignore what "should be" using "what is" as the excuse.
