Aggregating Skeptical Thought

Is it science?

I’m listening to the latest Point of Inquiry podcast and the interviewee is Natalie Angier on her latest book, The Canon A Whirligig Tour of the Beautiful Basics of Science. She’s talking about a number of very fundamental ideas to science that everyone should know as well as some recent really cool science that has come out.

This kind of made me wonder. Is Science a process or is it information? I never really thought about the exact definition if there is one. This one is easy (from Wikipedia).

Science refers to either:* the scientific method – a process for evaluating empirical knowledge; or* the organized body of knowledge gained by this process.

Why I felt compelled to blog this I don’t know
