    It is not undependable. It is by far our best method of finding facts. Who claims it is undependable?

    What do you expect?  100%?  ALL methods fall short.  Science is more dependable than Phylosophy and religion ---THATS why we depend on it instead.----we have NO 100% dependability on ANYTHING because we do NOT KNOW everything---so we go with what is best.

    It's limited by our measuring apparatuses and by our own senses.

    As compared to what?

    Religion?  On the simplest of predictions, religion gets it wrong.  If I had a dollar for every "end of the world" prediction I've ever heard, I'd be wealthy.

    Science isn't really undependable.  It is that the people who claim to be scientists aer human and therefore fallible.  Science, observed properly and managed carefully, will be quite dependable.

    Your question is far too vague to be answered. I would suggest you ask the question again and be more precise in what you are asking. Also use words that are found in the dictionary.

  • When you're trying to discover new things, you're going to have trial and error. This is quite literally the scientific method.

    Please give examples.

    Science is the name we give to the proven techniques of mathematics and measurement by which we establish the nature of EVERYTHING we know to be real. The conclusions drawn from the use of science can never be better than the available evidence allows or the mathematical techniques reveal. No one knows everything. We are still discovering evidence about many aspect of life and the universe.

    Science is the only dependable thing we have. The conclusions drawn by its use evolve over time as the evidence and mathematical techniques become available.

    If you can show where science is undependable, perhaps we can consider why that might be. Just making a claim with no supporting examples gets us no further forward.

    It isnt. People literally depend on science every day, sometimes in life or death situations

      If you can't figure out simple English and a very basic simile, I'm really not going to waste time attempting to justify the underlying philosophies of the scientific process to you.

    In what way do you consider it undependable and what does this have to do with golf?

      Damiana - You still have yet to provide examples of the lack of dependability of science
