    I will mention an episode occured in a lab, remarked by its responsible as her duty: a man brought to the lab a sample of honey because he wanted to know if the honey was somewhat cursed by maleficent eyes, and yes, she had to explain to that man that the analisys was not for such purposes, and what purposes it was up to.
    Scientific method is not reliable indeed with some beliefs, no matter what beliefs people that practise science can have, and I think I am careful saying people that practise science (not scientists), but I am really afraid that the distinction is not clear in real world, however there are really incompatible beliefs for a scientist to hold, at least for science.

    Perhaps a teacher of science, a good one, can in fact bear religious beliefs that don´t prejudice any facts in science of facts (physical sciences), but, yes I guess that cultural relativism is necessry (for more opinions aginst it), and other concepts, even ethical are necessary to consider, philosophical ones, and this is not science of facts, it concerns ethics too etc.
