Science provides an empirical way of answering interesting and important questions about the biological, physical and technological world. As I’ve said many times, people have the right to believe what they want — even if it’s based on a fundamentally flawed view of science — but when politicians start using anti-science as a basis for their decision making and policies, then we’re in very, very deep trouble.
When trying to answer the question ‘What is the meaning of science and technology?’ we have to view science as the study of the natural world while technology has to be viewed as the study of how to manipulate the natural world in order to suit man.
Galileo was first to propose the heliocentric theory of the solar system which stated that sun is at the center of the solar system and earth moves around it. This contradicted the geocentric theory of Bible which believed that Earth is at the center of the universe.
The theory has been the dominant area of research in the last 20 years in the domain of unifying the two laws of science and as the authors note, ‘ the promise of the theory has remained unfulfilled’ As the book review notes. Consider how social your child is when thinking about how to best introduce science to him. Science and technology challenge intellectual property systems, particularly patent laws. Put on your safety glasses & lab coat and get to work on a fun science fair project. And then he has the gall to say, I’m not a scientist”, that old canard used by the GOP when they’re about to cast all of science aside instead of actually listening to what scientists have to say. If you don’t trust the science —if you actively go out of your way to dismiss and distort it—then the legislation you will create will reflect that ideology. The third reason to doubt seriously the independent-world assumption of material science concerns the laws of nature.
Science Commons was launched in 2005 with the goal of bringing the openness and sharing that have made Creative Commons licenses a success in the arts and cultural fields to the world of science. In Europe, the Latin translation of Alhazen’s Book of Optics directly influenced Roger Bacon (13th century) in England, who argued for more experimental science as demonstrated by Alhazen. Diagrams or models are also not considered to be a good science project because an experiment is not being performed.
