abstract: The restructuring of the techno-sciences towards serving increasingly corporate rather than public interests has instilled a culture of overblown promises (promissory sciences), and biased research funding and policy schemes. Yet, this promissory science culture is not balanced by a moderating culture of ownership (responsibility) and critical reflection when failing to deliver on the promises or when faced with increasing uncertainties and complexity or by a likewise 'holistic' adverse impact assessment. Instead, the fabrication of counter-truths (or alternative facts) delivered with aggressive tactics of attacking data, evidence or dissenting perspectives that are inconvenient for corporate science has become 'normal'. These tactics aim for dominance over the narrative-making process and the mainstreaming of a particular 'truth' and over who gets to decide and influence policies. Consequently, science as the privileged ’fact- or truth provider’ for governance is being questioned by members of the public who discover the tactics behind the 'truth narrative' making process - which are neither new nor recent - but are left only with few science experts with credibility in the public eye who could explain and unravel the different perspectives on 'truth' to the society. I will draw from examples of three decades of research experience in my field of science - (transformation of) agro-food systems and biotechnology - where alternative truths and the struggle for dominance, suppression of dissent and reductionist interpretation of 'inconvenient' facts and evidence have been the normality from the get go. I predict that post-truth narratives will last and indeed flourish as long as the involved science communities are neither capable nor willing to face up to this state of affairs in their own ranks and how this erodes public trust in both science and democracy including its institutions.
