  Faith and Science   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Theology's academic classification among the theoretical sciences or arts began in the 12th century in the west and is due to the shift of theology into metaphysics.
The use of the intellect in the field of science leads unavoidably to the rejection of the supernatural as incomprehensible, and its use in the field of faith can lead to the rejection of science when it is considered to be in conflict with faith.
But the use of science in a metaphysical struggle against faith, as was practised in the West, and as was transferred to the East, is opposed quite rightly by the traditional theologians of the 18th and 19th century.

 1774 SCIENCE : DOUBLE AWARD (SALTERS)
For Double Award science, the final assessment total for any student will be made up of the best marks drawn from a minimum of three separate activities, covering all three content Attainment Targets.
These syllabuses and their associated teaching support materials provide an approach to teaching and learning in science which begins with familiar materials, phenomena and issues and leads on to consider the scientific ideas, principles and theories which will enable candidates to understand and explain the world around them.
The science content, theories and principles required by the syllabus are then introduced to help students to understand the work they are doing.

His memoir on the classification of the family of Ranunculaceæ (1773) led to his election to the Academy of Sciences.

As early as 1774, during the lifetime of the uncle, appeared the treatise "Exposition d'un nouvel Ordre des Plantes, adopté dans les démonstrations du Jardin royal", in the "Mém.

 Origins of Solar Systems Program
It is proposed to consider both in situ surface variability and remotely-sensed middle atmospheric variability, in order to improve the characterization of short-period weather (e.g.,diurnal and semidiurnal components), as well as longer period (e.g., day-to-day and seasonal) variations.
To investigate the surface variability in the lander data, a suite of data analysis tools will be employed that are effective at determining the dominant periods of variabilty and in discriminating between periods having little spectral separation.

It might be useful to examine some core issues of sustainability science (Kates et al.
In conclusion, I would reiterate that tropical forests are vital for social, economic, and ecological reasons.
We need to explore the core questions of sustainability science in the context of tropical forests and design robust policy and practice for adaptive tropical forest management if we are to mitigate the negative effects of human intervention in these ecosystems.

Note: The compositions plotted in the following 5 figures have been superseded by the results presented in: Rieder, R., et al., 1997, The chemical composition of the Martian soil and rocks returned by the mobile Alpha Proton X-ray Spectrometer: Preliminary results from the X-ray mode, Science, 278: 1771-1774.
In this diagram, preliminary Pathfinder APXS analyses of soils (yellow dots) extend the range of Viking soil analyses.
This suggests that the "stripe" is actually an accumulation of soil deposited in a crack in the rock face.
