    the word science comes from the Latin, scientia, "knowing"

    the "scientific" process does not lead to "knowing", it leads to better
    guesses

    the "scientific" process is as follows:

    1) hypothesis (any conjecture including theology, etc.)

    2) theory is a testable hypothesis, not necessarily now or when , just
    testable

    3) a founded theory is one who has observational or experimental findings

    NO WHERE does the idea of truth or "knowing" come into play

    applies equally to theology

    another reason I am a solipsist
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epistemological_solipsism

    I think the "scientific" community should stop using the words "science"
    and "scientific process" and replace it with "PROCESS OF INQUIRY",
    because they are misusing the root word "scientia"

    the best thing going, just over stated, and not stated properly
    according to the process

    anyone ought to be introduced to "scientific" philosophy before ANY
    "science"
