What is science?

Science is the perfection of any field.

Science requires evidence and never beliefs. It disqualified beliefs with evidence.

Evidence is not debate or persuasion, evidence is not forming arguments to enforce rigid beliefs.

Science is a method applied to reality that guides a researcher or inquisitive person to truth.

Science educates and is a tool of the educated.

One prominent figure associated with advancements in the scientific is Ibn al-Haytham (Alhazen), who lived in the 10th and 11th centuries. Alhazen, an Arab scientist and philosopher, emphasized empirical observation and experimentation. His work on optics, especially in his book "Kitab al-Manazir" (Book of Optics), is often considered influential in the development of the scientific method.

The scientific is now a documented set of steps a person should follow to arrive at truth.

Observe the mystery, study and ponder the mystery, theorize, show and discuss the mystery, repeat.

The results must be testable by others.

  1. Aristotle (384–322 BCE): Emphasized the importance of observation and empirical evidence in understanding nature.
  2. Ibn al-Haytham (965–1039): Considered by some as the "father of the modern scientific method" due to his emphasis on experimentation and the reproducibility of results.
  3. Ibn Sina (980–1037): Emphasized the importance of controlled experiments and quantitative data in scientific inquiry.
  4. Francis Bacon (1561–1626): Often credited with "formalizing" the scientific method by advocating for systematic observation, hypothesis testing, and controlled experiments.
  5. Galileo Galilei (1564–1642): Developed methods for quantitative measurement and experimentation, laying the foundation for modern physics.
  6. Johannes Kepler (1571–1630): Used observation and data analysis to formulate his laws of planetary motion, a key step in the development of modern astronomy.
  7. Isaac Newton (1643–1727): Combined the inductive and deductive approaches, emphasizing the role of mathematics and rigorous experimentation in scientific inquiry.
  8. Carl Popper (1902–1994): Proposed the concept of falsification, arguing that scientific theories should be susceptible to being proven wrong through empirical evidence.
