 Self-Service Science Forum Message
Science as we know it arose in the 17th century, at the time of Copernicus, Kepler, Descartes, Galileo, Bacon and Newton.
What the new science did was to propose models of the world that fitted with observed physical data and could be checked by further observations.
In 1623, Galileo asserted that science is concerned only with primary qualities, those qualities of the external world that could be weighed and measured.

Blaise Pascal (June 19, 1623 – August 19, 1662) was a French mathematician, physicist, and religious philosopher.
In formal logic, mathematics and computer science, Boolean algebras, or Boolean lattices, are algebraic structures which capture the essence of the logical operations AND, OR and NOT as well as the corresponding set-theoretic operations intersection, union and complement.

 Ownership battles and science funding
Pure research rarely hits a financial home run, but it's worth noting that two patented life sciences technologies from the '80s still generate $10 million in annual royalties to the University of Washington, so the potential revenues from successful research are substantial.
So, while it's true that the Washington bills are being promoted primarily as an economic development plan for the state's life sciences industry, the ultimate success of that industry turns on clear ownership rights to valuable research results.
Yet the net result of the new initiatives in California, Washington and several other states could be to add another layer of uncertainty to the ownership of crucial research.

Geneticist Barbara McClintock's studies of corn plants revealed that genes can move around on chromosomes and won her a Nobel Prize in 1983, when she was 81.
Along the way, however, she battled skepticism toward her work and barriers to women in science.
When she began her studies at Cornell University in 1919, for example, women were forbidden from majoring in genetics, so she earned her Ph.D. in botany.

Science is the truth only in matters that can be objectified; in the spiritual world, where values, goals, authority and purpose are located, science has nothing to say.
Realizing the narrow-minded nature of science opens the gate to an understanding of God that complements the scientific truth and gives life, love and peace.

 96.06.03: Asteroids, Comets, and Meterorites: Their Intimate Relation with Life on Earth
I have long felt that science must be taught as an active, organic process of observation, measurement, hypothesizing, experimentation, discovery and theory-building, not as a static discipline.
This sort of an approach to science education is totally in keeping with the present national science education reform movement, which places greater emphasis on the process of science and less emphasis (and less time) on the specific blocks of subject matter which have been the mainstay of previous decades of science education.
This may appear to be an insurmountable task for the busy, generalist science teacher—the ongoing and simultaneous study of biology, chemistry, astronomy—all the physical and life sciences—but it’s a doable task and one which makes the profession of teaching all the more enjoyable and new.

Contrary to the unilateral denials of many evolutionists, one’s worldview does indeed play heavily on one’s interpretation of scientific data, a phenomenon that is magnified in matters concerning origins, where neither repeatability, nor observation, nor measurement—the three immutable elements of the scientific method—may be employed.
Maybe not, but certain sections of ‘the church’ use past mistakes by scientists as a stick to beat science with (as you are doing), but then choose not to follow the rules that scientists do use now in order to minimise mistakes.
