If you can't question it, then it ain't science.

^You have a point here. However we can also argue that bad science isn't actually science.

What about holding science in such high regard that it becomes akin to a religion? Brave New World. God-awful book, interesting message.

No true Scotsman

No true Scotsman is a kind of informal fallacy in which one attempts to protect a universal generalization from counterexamples by changing the definition in an ad hoc fashion to exclude the counterexample. Rather than denying the counterexample or rejecting the original claim, this fallacy modifies the subject of the assertion to exclude the specific case or others like it by rhetoric, without reference to any specific objective rule.

As in:
No Scotsman has ever raped.

Hey guy! I got this Scotsman right over here and he is as rapey as you could ask for. He raped a Nun! He raped his Mother! The man raped his own father!

Well he is no true Scotsman!

Sorry about that.

My philosophy text book used the rape example. Inspired by listening to Arlo Guthrie's song Alice's Restaurant I embellished the number of victims.

So an excerpt from the aforementioned, which is a story set to music:

There was all kinds of mean, nasty, ugly-lookin' people on the bench there
There was mother-rapers, father-stabbers, father-rapers!
Father-rapers sittin' right there on the bench next to me! And they was mean
And nasty and ugly and horrible and crime fightin' guys were sittin' there
On the bench, and the meanest, ugliest, nastiest one the meanest
Father-raper of them all was comin' over to me, and he was mean and
Ugly and nasty and horrible and all kinds of things, and he sat down next to
Me. He said, "Kid, what'd you get?"

I said, "I didn't get nothin'. I had to pay fifty dollars and pick up the garbage."

He said, "What were you arrested for, kid?" and I said, "litterin'"
And they all moved away from me on the bench there, with the hairy eyeball
And all kinds of mean, nasty things, till I said, "And creatin' a nuisance"
And they all came back, shook my hand, and we had a great time on the
Bench talkin' about crime, mother-stabbin', father-rapin', all kinds
Of groovy things that we was talkin' about on the bench, and everything was fine ...
