You seem to be looking to end science entirely...you do shun modern medicine, right?"
Well not entirely. You depend on science fully and I know for a fact that it has tremendously large holes. You must agree there is bad science also. Yes I believe that certain science needs to go away. I would love to see pharmaceuticals go away myself. Legal drug pushers is just not working and there are many examples. Instead of reaching for the medicine cabinet there is another medicine cabinet in the house, it's called the kitchen.
Also annoying things like genetic alterations to 'juice up' cows with hormones to produce ten times the amounts of milk and other synthetic ways to ruin a perfect thing. Science cannot even begin to understand the complexity and perfection of cows milk yet they try to alter it 'willy nilly' and the world is the Ginny Pig. We have mad cow disease, scientists thought it was a great idea to feed cows, cow spinal cords? Ask yourself this, which is better for you raw vegetables (closest to God) or canned or frozen?
Vaccines also are ruining many children and rendering them with autism and on and on. Chemicals they used to use to induce labor used to render the children deformed. There are many out there with defects because of it. They still don't know for sure if the current methods are better for women and children. Again Natural is better.
Like it was pointed out in an older post, "You know, there is nothing in human nature or in human history that points to the idea that we are moving anywhere. Technology and science, though they are cumulative and have improved, in many ways, the lives of people within the industrialized nations, have also unleashed the most horrific forms of violence and death, and let's not forget, environmental degradation, in human history. So, there's nothing intrinsically moral about science."
I was searching to see if gelatin (pork or animal fat) was in yogurt, which it is (plain might be OK). I stumbled on this also:
"Another set of controversial ingredients is natural colorings. It is advantageous for manufacturers to use natural colorings to avoid listing artificial colors on the label. Two natural colors with kashrus concerns are carmine and grape. Carmine is derived from the insect coccus cacti."
This bug is crushed up in yogurt and other foods for quote "natural" color. MMM, Yummy!
So yes I would love to see some science go away but that just won't happen. Maybe if we stop connecting science with profit we would be better off. If science could honor God's Creation more in the mindset of scientists, to keep God's things sacred, then we wouldn't be in this trouble we are in. Science has no moral rudder and the ship is adrift.
From that same older post "I think the New Atheists also make that leap from science into the cult of science, and that's a problem."
