This paper focuses on a common misunderstanding about science. Science was and is still reoresented as epiteme, certain and definitive knowledge. On the contrary, science develops, like any other human activity, by trial and error, and corrects itself through critical debate within scientific community. This paper want to criticize the belief, wrong but widespread, that the adjective "scientific" is synonymous with “true” and therefore “certain”. Our knowlegde is always fallible, but we have no other means of dealing with our world and even pandemic.
