  Theology Today - Vol 40, No. 1 - April 1983 - ARTICLE - Faith And Imagination In Science And Religion
Science is rooted implicitly in a fundamental faith, a faith in truth and value.
The work of science is the work of a community of people who, like all people, are taught to interpret reality in conformity with the views of the community to which they belong, sometimes regardless of objective evidence to the contrary.
When science applies its empirical tests to its theories, it is simply doing in its own way what philosophy, theology, practical human sense, and daily religion must all do, and that is find some way of sorting out wise ideas from foolish ones, coherent ideas from incoherent, accurate ones from inaccurate, on a continuing basis.

 Science and the Canadian Arctic - Cambridge University Press   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
This is a study of the nature and role of science in the exploration of the Canadian Arctic.
Professor Levere focuses on the imperialistic dimensions and nationalistic aspirations that informed arctic science, and situates its rise in the context of economic and military history of nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Europe and North America.
Accessibly written and prodigiously researched, Science and the Canadian Arctic is of interest to an audience of historians, environmental scientists and anyone interested in the Arctic.

 Science Quotes
Science is facts; just as houses are made of stones, so is science made of facts; but a pile of stones is not a house and a collection of facts is not necessarily science.  ~Henri Poincaré
The radical novelty of modern science lies precisely in the rejection of the belief, which is at the heart of all popular religion, that the forces which move the stars and atoms are contingent upon the preferences of the human heart.  ~Walter Lippmann
Science is all those things which are confirmed to such a degree that it would be unreasonable to withhold one's provisional consent.  ~Stephen Jay Gould

 STATE - LoveToKnow Article on STATE
Article 109 in particular provides that when a law of a state is inconsistent with the law of the Commonwealth, the latter shall prevail, and the former shall, to the extent of the inconsistency, be infalid, thus paving the way for the ultimate consolidation of the federal power.
Much has been written on the science of the state, or, as we prefer, in Anglo-Saxon lands, to call it, political science.
Anglo-Saxon institutions are following their independent development, and if the influence of foreign institutions is felt at all, it is probably that of the clear logical detail and cohesion of French institutions.

 Science Museum Library - Introduction
We were founded in 1883 as the Science Library of the South Kensington Museum (which also had Art and Education Libraries), and had grown into an important national science library by the 1930s.
The Science Museum Library is primarily a research library for the history and public understanding of the physical sciences and all branches of engineering.
On 15 March 2005, Trustees of the National Museum of Science and Industry, having discussed key issues with the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, decided for the time being to continue the Science Museum Library's presence in the Imperial College Library building, South Kensington, while an independent study is undertaken of NMSI's funding.

Following strictly empirical principles, he strove to rid science of all metaphysical and religious assumptions.
He felt science should confine itself to the description of phenomena that could be perceived by the senses.
This view challenged science's traditional claim of yielding absolute knowledge and was greatly influential in the development of logical positivism.

 What is Sound Science?
     To say “I don’t know what sound science is, but I know it’s not that study!” or “This study is obviously sound science, because it concludes what I already believe is true,” simply confuses the matter.
     Defining sound science is especially difficult in the area of assessing potential health risks to drinking water contaminants.
     Disagreement regarding sound science is to be expected as experts move beyond facts that can be proven using a scientific protocol or logical reasoning to express beliefs that cannot be scientifically documented.
