16. That then results in useless, or worse yet, deadly

outcomes. My mind went to pharmaceutical research for the previous statement.

Which, when taken out of rigorous scientific examination or given the "scientific" stamp of approval, can then result in helping to justify or validate the most horrific treatment of people and our planet.

Social Darwinism used to justify suffering of, and disgust with, those in poverty. The science of psychology used to justify the "correction" and "cure" of those who try to escape and free themselves from slavery as "drapetomania". "Medical" science used to validate denial of education of women because it would cause a woman's uterus to "atrophy." And so on, and so on...
