Hmm paranoid much?
Anyway, science doesn't always have to know where it's going- you don't get anywhere by doing nothing new, hence it's fair to say that the internet is a direct result of Berners-Lee's work, for instance.
Science at that level is all about trying to answer the unknown, and with that in mind it's going to be impossible to predict the results- the process of the search will undoubtedly lead to the unexpected coming up, but it's a self defeating prospect to only investigate/research where the answers and outcomes are known?
In short, I guess it's not very consistent to write off or derogate a scientific experiment without knowing what the outcomes will be, whether they are as predicted by the proponents or otherwise.
