Short Article: What Is Science?
July 4, 2010 6 Comments
When our brain is baffled by some questions like who are we, what is our purpose and how and why of nature’s working, it is science which comes before us like a cop to solve our problems and trying to answer questions with a logical perspective. Science and philosophy seems to be exploring same thing but in a rather different approach. It won’t be vague to say that today science seems to be only exploring the question of how? For example, one magnet attract another magnet and it is fact based on observational data. Now if any student asked question why magnet attracted each other, the most probable answer which a teacher would like to have is, because north pole of magnet attracts south pole of magnet. It may seem that teacher has answered the question of why, no, exactly not, he actually answered the pseudo question of how(how magnet attracted each other?). Now if that sentient student is going to question further, why north pole attracts south pole and repels north pole, most probably either he be ridiculed or to regarded as stupid. Why? Since he has asked a wise question? The above teacher student example by bruceleeeowe enlightens some questions which are really very serious. The same thing can be applied to scientists. When anyone put the question of why before them, what they answer is the pseudo question of how. Isn’t it killing of science?
Today I’ll publish a full detailed research article about lake monster and will explore whether they are illusion in full length.
