What is science? Science is the concerted human effort to understand, or to understand better, the history of the natural world and how the natural world works, with observable physical evidence as the basis of that understanding1. It is done through observation of natural phenomena, and/or through experimentation that tries to simulate natural processes under controlled conditions. (There are, of course,more definitions of science.) Consider some examples. An ecologist observing the territorial behaviors of bluebirds and a geologist examining the distribution of fossils
