  Science for Children   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Some writers also argued that the sciences were becoming a sufficiently important part of British culture that they were essential parts of children’s education, to fit them for their future role as responsible members of society.
The number of children’s books on the sciences published in the first two decades of the nineteenth century indicates that the sciences (or at least some of them) were not only acceptable in the nursery, but had become a standard part of childhood.
The absence of science teaching from most school curricula (and certainly most primary school curricula) meant that, until the last decades of the century, the majority of children gained their knowledge about nature from reading done in the home.

 Science Quotes
Science is nothing but trained and organized common sense differing from the latter only as a veteran may differ from a raw recruit: and its methods differ from those of common sense only as far as the guardsman's cut and thrust differ from the manner in which a savage wields his club.
Science is facts; just as houses are made of stone, so is science made of facts; but a pile of stones is not a house, and a collection of facts is not necessarily science.
Experimental science is the queen of sciences and the goal of all speculation.

 "Separating Religious Fundamentalist 'Science' from Science" by Tim M. Berra, Ph.D.
To whatever extent the scientific trappings of "creation science" are accorded credence by the schools or by the courts, much will suffer: freedom of thought; an informed, open minded American public; the vitality of science and technology; and the fate of our society in an increasingly competitive, increasingly educated world.
Science and religion are concerned with different spheres of human activity, and for the great majority of people -- believers and non-believers alike -- there is no basic conflict between them.
Science's domain is the natural world and the scientific method has been spectacularly successful at discovering knowledge about this world.
