Science is not particularly reliable.

And yet, we have remarkable technology, and can do medical marvels.

My tentative theory is that there's a lot of knowledge that's less formal than science in engineering, manufacturing, and the practice of medicine which makes it possible to get work done, and some fairly effective methods of filtering information that comes from science.
