Truth is a reflection of reality in the will of individuals. It entails a true reflection of consciousness within people. For the three sources of "truth" ( authority, personal reflection, and science), the scientific method has had the most powerful impact on the modern-day world. The scientific method allows individuals in the modern day world to set out procedures to achieve desired results. As a source of truth, the scientific method is basically concerned with observation, analysis, hypothesis, and making a theory through facts and evidence. It is the most powerful of all the sources because it helps people to acquire strong evidence since it is responsible for the elimination of unreliable evidence. In the process of trying to achieve the maximum possible levels of objectivity, the scientific method offers an organized sense in solving political issues hence making it the most powerful source in the contemporary world. Also, since politics is based on facts an evidence it is therefore hard to undermine the power of scientific method because of its accurate facts and information. In the modern world, those who are in power seem to use the information to govern. If you are in control of information then it means you control the people hence making the scientific method the power source. Although the scientific method is the most powerful since it is based on realities and evidence, it is not justifiable for politicians to either lie or misleads their constituents because of the confidence in the overall truth of the agendas. Yes, the scientific method is the most powerful source of truth but it is not free from error. No information is ever accurate since we don’t have the full knowledge of the world. For these reasons, politicians should justify their agendas to the constituents and try not to be too confident on the available information. They should always remember that theories have been interpreted and they may contain errors.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
