I already explained that, but I'll explain it again. Just because a few people claiming to be practicing psychology are not following the scientific method, does not invalidate psychology, properly done, as a science.

That is not an adequate explanation.

The scientifically conducted studies of psychologists produce 'results' that are open to subjective interpretation. In fact they require subjective interpretation.

Wrongo!

The results are interpreted according to the evidence gathered in the studies.   There is subjectivity in the application of the findings to clinical practice just as there is in the equally scientific field of medicine.

Please give an example of an objective conclusion derived from the results of of a psychological study. Thanks.

Doctors sometimes interpret test results wrongly, but the test results do relate concretely to some real objective problem, whether it is a disease organism, a parasite, a physical failure, a breakdown in the function of the nervous system, a brain tumor etc.

Now how about you answer my question? You say I'm allowed to preferentially associate with people who have things in common, like playing chess. But if I want to preferentially associate with people who believe females don't have to wear bags over their heads, I'm a racist.

How is that?

  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.
