Science - a way of thinking that evolves as follows:
Good science is FECUNDITY gives rise to more science.
Things such as DNA, genetics, enriched crops, etc were discovered this way.
Science works by disagreeing. It stimulates thought.
Science doesn't prove anything?
Earth Science is a combination of sciences to understand the Earth (we dont have any other place to live). It consists of:
Energy = ability to perform work.
Energy is conserved; it cannot be made nor destroyed by normal means. It requires atomic fission or fusion. Energy changes form. Heat is common form of energy. Heat is not always good (i.e. auto exhausts)
Work is doing something; the simplest form of work is moving something. Energy is required to do work.
Light can be considered in two ways; as a very small packet of matter, or as a wave.
It consists of:
Visible light consists of various colors, which when combined from white light.
The various colors have different wave lengths and frequencies.
Continuum a whole without breaks
Bacteria are required to break down nitrogen.
