The point of science is probably clearest when
we think about the origin of science: Ultimately,
all science comes from the curiosity and
inquisitiveness that is fundamentally human, from
questions that arise. What makes the sky blue?
What makes day and night? and on and on as you can
see from the questions on this site. Science is
the quest by humans to answer those questions,
discovering the fundamental principles that
connect those answers, all using rigorous
analytical thinking. In the process, many
things have been discovered that have been of much
use to us humans, but I like to think of that as a
byproduct rather than the point of science.
