Good Science Does not Lie!
Science is the search for knowledge, which is the tool to understand life. Science is a study done by researching, studying and experiencing. Why do we have science? Curiosity is probably the reason why science started in the first place. Newton was curious about the cause of the apple falling on his head. That science can be looked at many branches of research (history, medicine...). Science, beyond curiosity, come in handy when using it for tools in life, as for example, medicine or technology. Science can be used literally everywhere at anytime. Science can be used on earth and also in space. Science is used by anyone, scientists, medical doctors or even historians. Good science is the result of a fact that is accurate and convincing. Science is good when the information taken out of it is valid and true. If science only relies on theories, feelings and broad ideas, life would be lead to a wrong path. Existing facts and evidence make science a powerful and useful tool to human’s society.One reason why good science is a study, which relies on existing facts is because facts do not lie. If researchers use invalid and inaccurate information, their knowledge would not be certain and correct. If doctors used false information, lives would be in danger. Medicine is based on facts. People rely on actual facts and evidence before they trust any doctor to operate on them. Medicine is considered good science because it, most often, saves lives. The reason medicine usually saves lives is because the information is based on true facts that permit medicine to be practiced or not to be practiced if the facts proves it wrong. If one was getting operated, isn’t it safe and moral to know that the doctor knows exactly what he is doing? A factual experimentation sticks to exact procedures in which controls are where they are supposed to be and variables are okay to be...
