In the News (Fri 18 Apr 14)

The basis of science is to determine what is true, not by what the greatest authorities claim, or by what would be true in the ideal universe, or some magical revelation or inner feeling, but by what actually happens in the real world.
Science recognizes that all beliefs have the possibility of error, so it is always open to new evidence.
Science as it is practiced in the real world does not always live up to the ideal required by the scientific method.

 Science vs Pseudoscience
The main problem with the social-role definition of science is that it has no connection to the sorts of cognitive standards that ought to be in the forefront of debates about pseudoscience.
The creation-science "model" is, therefore, not an example of science at all: it involves a supra-natural cause, transcendent to the system of finite causes; it explains in terms of purposes and intentions; and it cites a transcendent, unique, and unrepeatable - even in principle, uncontrollable - action.
There have been many times in the history of science when perfectly regular connections have been observed and summarized in what are called "phenomenological descriptions"; but we are almost never satisfied by mere descriptions of a regularity or pattern.

 Science Timeline
In 1678, Huygens, in a communication to the Academie des Science, propounded a wave theory of light propagated through 'aether,' and held that every point on a wave is itself a source of new waves.
Thus the connections which science establishes are "entirely arbitrary," and the "utmost effort of human reason is to reduce the principles, productive of natural phenomena, to a greater simplicity" (Hume 1738:30).
In 1758, Alexis Claude Clairaut conjectured that Halley's comet might be subject to unknown forces, such as another comet or unknown planet.

 History of Science
The history of science is usually seen as emerging from the early studies of Joseph Preistley (1733-1804), Adam Smith (1723-1790) and Jean E. Montucla (1725-1799) in the late eighteenth century.
Philosophers of science, smitten with logical positivism's alluring promise of rigor, began to think that the method of conceptual analysis alone was sufficient to formulate an adequate understanding of the scientific enterprise.
Science 2 (S2) on the other hand, is the process by which those discoveries were made (i.e., including not only explicit statements about advances but also the various false starts, technological half-steps, implicit speculations, and rough sketches, etc.).

 History of Biology
The Babylonians were quite knowledgeable in a number of areas of science: their knowledge of astronomy was very advanced by even 1500 BC or earlier.
Because modern science distinguishes between subjective and objective and teaches us that objective is “good” and subjective is “bad,” this creates for us an increasingly wide gulf between our perceptions of phenomena and the concepts by which we explain them.
Since Darwin’s time, in Western culture, science and religion have pretty much gone their own ways at a time when new discoveries are constantly being made in science.

It's impossible to overestimate the contribution Linnaeus made to science — he developed the system for classifying all living organisms that is still in use today.

 Strange Science: Sea Monsters
Denys de Montfort bragged that if this representation were swallowed, he would next represent a cephalopod embracing the Straits of Gibraltar.
Seventy years later, Alexander Winchell did two admirable things: He called Denys de Montfort's depiction a sailor's yarn, but also suggested, "the unexplored depths of the ocean conceal the forms of octopods that far surpass in magnitude any of the species known to science." Winchell was right on both counts.
Here two sailors cook their dinner on the back of a whale so big that they have mistaken it for an island and landed on it.
