: Here are my supposedly inconsistent statements:

: 1. Science makes no claim to absolute Truth.

: 2. Scientific methods better "approximate" reality than non-hypothesis
: testing ways of knowing.

How do you measure better or poorer approximations without reference to
some absolute truth? You can't pull out a Cauchy-style convergence without
proving the sequence elements can be into a total order. I don't have
total orderring of different axiom/belief systems. Do you so claim?
