Science doesn’t purvey absolute truth.  Science is a mechanism.  It’s a way of trying to improve your knowledge of nature.  It’s a system for testing your thoughts against the universe and seeing whether they match.  And this works, not just for the ordinary aspects of science, but for all of life.  I should think people would want to know that what they know is truly what the universe is like, or at least as close as they can get to it.
