  science. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05
Science may be roughly divided into the physical sciences, the earth sciences, and the life sciences.
The physical sciences include physics, chemistry, and astronomy; the earth sciences (sometimes considered a part of the physical sciences) include geology, paleontology, oceanography, and meteorology; and the life sciences include all the branches of biology such as botany, zoology, genetics, and medicine.
Science, in the modern sense of the term, came into being in the 16th and 17th cent., with the merging of the craft tradition with scientific theory and the evolution of the scientific method.

 Kant's Philosophy of Science (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
It is of interest to contemporary philosophers of science primarily because of the way in which Kant attempts to articulate a philosophical framework that places substantive conditions on our scientific knowledge of the world while still respecting the autonomy and diverse claims of particular sciences.
Historians of philosophy of science investigate, among other things, Kant's work in the conceptual foundations of physics — in particular, his matter theory (e.g., the infinite divisibility of matter, attractive and repulsive forces, inertia, atoms and the void) and his dynamical account of the laws of mechanics.
Kant then uses the claim that science proper requires the construction of the concept of the object in a priori intuition to exclude the possibility that chemistry and psychology, at least as they were practiced at that time, could count as science proper.

 Thoughts on Science and Religion
We no longer live in the "modern" world where science was synonymous with progress and the questions raised by science were considered to be the only relevant questions that one might ask of reality.
To answer the questions of how science and religion are similar and how science and religion are different, a review of the scientific method is useful.
It is likely that science as it developed in the Jewish, Christian, and Islamic world has its origins in the biblical faith of a personal, intelligent creator who gives humans responsibility for the world in which they dwell.

 Scientific Proof
In science, "fact" can only mean "confirmed to such a degree that it would be perverse to withhold provisional assent." I suppose that apples might start to rise tomorrow, but the possibility does not merit equal time in physics classrooms.
A decent science education should let students be aware of the nature of "proof" and "fact" in science.
And a good education in science should also gives students an appreciation not simply of scientific conclusions, but of their evidential foundation; the *reasons* why they are considered conclusions.

In 1988, researchers discovered that when certain films consisting of alternating layers of a magnetic and a non-magnetic metal are placed in a magnetic field, the resistance of the film changes markedly, a phenomenon known as "giant magnetoresistance".
And also certainly, it can be argued that the changes that have occurred have been due more to science and scientific education of the public than to any independent evolution of public sensibilities.
