Do you remember how we used to think Newton's laws of physics were absolutely spot on? Do you think the laws of physics are totally correct right now?

I'm sorry that you believe that everything in science is objectively correct else should be ignored and regarded as witchcraft - but I just don't agree with you there. Science takes its best guess given the information we have available right now, nothing more.

When does psychology become sciency enough for you to call it a science?

For reference:
sci·en·tif·ic meth·od
noun
a method of procedure that has characterized natural science since the 17th century, consisting in systematic observation, measurement, and experiment, and the formulation, testing, and modification of hypotheses
