Science (from the Latin scientia, meaning "knowledge") is an enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about the natural world.
In its oldest and broadest sense, science is also the resulting body of reliable knowledge that can be logically and convincingly explained
Science refers to a system of acquiring knowledge. This system uses observation and experimentation to describe and explain natural phenomena. The term science also refers to the organized body of knowledge people have gained using that system. Less formally, the word science often describes any systematic field of study or the knowledge gained from it.
In the words of Carl Sagan:
"Science is a way of thinking much more than it is a body of knowledge."

With science, you look around, try to figure out what's going on, and then check to make sure it's right. So I think it's pretty clear which one will get us to the truth.

What would you say when someone tells you "Have you gained weight?" in front of others?It was full of people and I would not say the comment was really welcome. Yes, I did gain weight, I have to admit, not that much... She did not mean to insult, but I would not consider it to...
