Lol, it won't fly. First of all, science is just a methodology of establishing truth about some aspects of what we call reality. Everything which cannot be verified by a reproducible experiment is not a science. All theories, therefore, are mere theories. Analogue of religious sects. It also automatically disqualifies all humanities, and especially socially constructed bullshit like race theories, etc.

That, in turn, will strip high social status of academics and "people doing science" from way too many people (which is absolutely good, so it will never happen).

Science as a social construction took (along with big government) place of religion as prestigious occupation and the way to have a high social status.
