I do agree that science is an evidence based progress, because for all the progress that have been done in world history, there had been a path to follow. Since investigations about a theory or a hypotesis to experiment to prove that a claim is true or discover new things.
because "liberalism" is filthy petty bourgeoise and rentier class ideology, as if the extra income for a class of fortunate real estate, shop and website owners justifies the social injustice at large.
because capitalism has no regard for anything other than profit, which led the capitalists to lie about anthropogenic global warming, and prevent a transition to green energy, which may well destroy many existing ecosystems, make half of land based species extinct, and kill millions of people.
because capitalism is not based on scientific, observable facts. It's based mostly on closed pressupositions that form a belief system (e.g. invisible hand). It really resembles more a religion then anything else.
All the problems as we know them know. Perhaps capitalism was necessary to give perspective for a possible living standard. Now we must evolve out of it and find new possibilities in favor of everyone, no matter what race, class or gender. Don't forget, capitalism isn't a force of nature.
Capitalism is a system in which a society is expected to compete in itself to make money and survive. Capitalism also encourages individualism which alone is a social catastrophe. We are expected to work for our individual interests only.
technology happens due to successful scientists. there is no evidence that banks, landlords and plutocracy are essential for a scientist to succeed. they merely need sufficient material resources and any economic system can provide that. it is also wrong that wealth is possible only in capitalism :)
because this acomplishments require knowledge, technology and energy sources. None of this are dependent on capitalism. The existence of this socio-economic model at the same time of the developments we had is pure coincidence and could have hapened in a collaborative environment.
You can not say that with utter certainty. There is strong evidence to the contrary.
