Unlike most other philosophical meandering, it actually affects things and produces results. In other words, it's more than empty daydreaming. The 'scientific method' doesn't really exist though, it's not monolithic by any means just as 'science' doesn't exist as a monolith. These two terms, though useful, are cancer.

it's what scientists use to prove things. proven things work. look around your pc. there's proof of what engineers can do with stuff that has been worked out and proven.

Is looking away from ass equivalent to looking away from explosions in movies?

Also,beyond the standard cliche of "read ellul" which you should 100% do, it's not really a meme but it's becoming one. Once you confuse objective (shared between others in a fixed state), group reality with subjective (only your own, your personal narrative of day to day experienced moments) you begin to lose perspective and become dogmatic, hence the notable decline in scientific output over the last few decades outside of muh computer is faster and it told me X.

Science is an enormously successful human enterprise. The study of scientific method is the attempt to discern the activities by which that success is achieved. Among the activities often identified as characteristic of science are systematic observation and experimentation, inductive and deductive reasoning, and the formation and testing of hypotheses and theories. How these are carried out in detail can vary greatly, but characteristics like these have been looked to as a way of demarcating scientific activity from non-science, where only enterprises which employ some canonical form of scientific method or methods should be considered science (see also the entry on science and pseudo-science). On the other hand, more recent debate has questioned whether there is anything like a fixed toolkit of methods which is common across science and only science.
See plato.stanford.edu/entries/scientific-method/
The demarcation between science and pseudoscience is part of the larger task of determining which beliefs are epistemically warranted. This entry clarifies the specific nature of pseudoscience in relation to other categories of non-scientific doctrines and practices, including science denial(ism) and resistance to the facts. The major proposed demarcation criteria for pseudo-science are discussed and some of their weaknesses are pointed out. In conclusion, it is emphasized that there is much more agreement on particular cases of demarcation than on the general criteria that such judgments should be based upon. This is an indication that there is still much important philosophical work to be done on the demarcation between science and pseudoscience.

what scientists use to prove things
If some scientist tells you that they proved something, what they're really telling you is that they're nothing more than a trained monkey. Science produces evidence, not proof. That's not a bad thing, though, and I even think it's a good thing.
Is there something wrong with it? I tend to use it for brief overviews since it's magnitudes more helpful than Wikipedia.
You can't really quantify innovation, can you? I guess you could do "number of new technologies" but how innovative something is seems pretty qualitative.

the idea that you can measure it is very silly indeed and posting such silly pictures only makes you as silly yourself as your argument silly

Read Kuhn's Structure of Scientific Revolutions and Feyrebrand's Against Method. Move onto Frege and Russell and Wittgenstein and Quine. Then read Goedel's Incompleteness Theorem. Proceed forward onto Deleuze and Badio and Zizek and Gabriel and incomplete ontology guys. Revisit Greeks and Freud and Lacan if necessary.

Anarcho-primitivism isn't in conflict with the scientific method though as they want to accomplish different things.

The scientific method is a means to the end of finding the truth of the material so we can better bend it our own ends.

Anarcho-primitivism is the political idea that we should massively reduce our population and stop using the science and technology to live naturally.

Do any anarchoprimitivists think that the scientific method is a bad way of deducing the truth or just that it unfortunately leads to politically bad results?

exactly what we had in the first decades of the 20th century when people like Jung, Bergson, Freud were in vogue; some sort of diagonal system in between pure realism and pure idealism. That era is coincidentally when the vast majority of progress was made in science. Compare 1900-1950 and 1950 to 2000 and it's not even a competition.

It is a meme, but one that is indicative of the era's scientific community's zeitgeist in which it belongs to. It didn't just appear randomly / for the hell of it. It's regarded as a rule of thumb for a reason.

You can very easily make a timeline of the inventions that caused big cultural shifts throughout the ages. You can look at what influenced who. You can see where the scientific method led to the knowledge required for inventions and new technologies. It's easy you retard.
