A lot of people need some specialized scientific knowledge to do their jobs. They may not be interested in the rest of it, but they are interested in that because it matters to what they're doing. If we hide science behind a general scientific conspiracy, people like that won't join, and they won't be able to do their jobs effectively, and society will be poorer as a result.
