  The Torah-Science Debates - Torah & Science
The support of science, the blind acceptance of the validity of scientific statements and the equation of science with truth (at least science and truth as they were perceived at the turn of the century) became an important thread in the fabric of modern Western Judaism.
All science and all research are accepted as valid sources of truth and the Torah is stretched and twisted on the Procrustean bed of compromise to conform to the new discovery.
Science and technology have so much to offer mankind; what a terrible waste that misconceptions and mistakes serve as a crutch for the non-observant and as an obstacle to those who want to return to the Torah.

 Sympathetic Vibratory Physics - John W. Keely's Sacred Science.
Sympathetic Vibratory Physics is a dynamic science and philosophy merged as one subject.
This is a science based on Natural Law governing Life, hope and Love and not Death, despair and destruction.
The result is a whole new view into Life, science and nature - based on universal laws instead of misbeliefs, greed or lust for power.

 Science & Religion:  gengeral introduction
Position that science can explain all and that scientific method is the only reliable source of knowledge is a philosophical position which goes well beyond science (81).
Science and religion have distinctive domains and methods and hence in principle cannot conflict (84).
Perhaps science arose in the West because of the Jewish and Christian belief in an orderly and intelligible universe and belief that nature is good and worthy of exploration.

 Science-type stuff
It is worth pointing out, though, that although the coincidence in timing virtually compels belief in the connection, there is still a problem in that the strongest response (at 100 kyr) corresponds to the weakest forcing, and as far as I am aware this problem has not been resolved.
There was also a book by the prominent science writer Lowell Ponte (The Cooling) that derided the skeptics and noted the importance of acting in the absence of firm, scientific foundation.
This paper is actually rather noteworthy in the annals of science, a seminal study linking orbital forcing to the periodicities found in ocean cores.

 Richard Owen (1804-1892)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
In 1827 he was appointed Assistant Curator of the Royal College of Surgeons' Hunterian Collections and then Hunterian professor (1836), and conservator (1842).
The support Owen lent to orthodox men of science and supporters of the status quo and sometimes a fawning elitism made him a favourite of elite conservative patrons.
Owen later became Fullerian professor at the Royal Institution in 1858, and president of the British Association for the Advancement of Science (1858).

O Logic: born gatekeeper to the Temple of Science, victim of capricious destiny: doomed hitherto to be the drudge of pedants: come to the aid of thy master, Legislation.
Every science that has thriven has thriven upon its own symbols: logic, the only science which is admitted to have made no improvements in century after century, is the only one which has grown no symbols.
Every other science, even logic, especially in its early stages, is in danger of evaporating into airy nothingness, degenerating, as the Germans say, into an arachnoid film, spun from the stuff that dreams are made of.

 EUROPEAN UNION:Cresson Resigns in Wake of Fraud Report -- Koenig 283 (5409): 1827 -- Science
The European Union's embattled research commissioner, Edith Cresson, submitted her resignation this week along with the other 19 EU commissioners in the wake of a scathing report by a European Parliament investigative panel that alleged cronyism and mismanagement in the EU's executive body.
As Science went to press, it was not yet clear whether some commissioners would be renamed to their positions by their respective governments, to serve out terms that had been scheduled to expire at the end of this year.
However, two sources in Brussels said it was "highly unlikely" that the French government would restore Cresson to her post, and officials are beginning to speculate about her successor.
