      It is undeniable that science is incredibly useful in the pursuit of knowledge. However, it has been argued that there are some areas in which science cannot provide any answers. Do you believe that science is limited in its scope? If so, is it worthwhile considering areas which science cannot answer, or a waste of time?

      In my opinion, science doesn't answer how in the world the universe even got here. I don't buy the whole Big Bang Theory and all that nonsense that science proclaims to be truth. I believe in Creationism. Science does answers a LOT of things, don't get me wrong, but that's only usually topics that are actually within man's range of understanding.

      I also believe that Science do not have all the answers for everything since no human or experiment could give an exact reasoning for all aspects in life. I also believe that a mighty "Creator" hat give us life. Science helps us understand some aspect in life and makes us have a more comfortable life here on earth. It is also a very useful tool to understand other aspects on earth and in the universe.

      Yes. I believe there is science to everything. To catching fly-balls, to breathing air. I do believe god made this world, but there's a science to it.

      No, they don't answer for example, religious questions. They don't answer questions about supernatural stuff either.

      No, I do not believe that science answers everything, but it does present interesting theories about many things. I do not think that any one earthly thing can answer all things. There are many entities that have answers to different questions. That collective knowledge provides a breathe of answers for most people's queries.

      The whole point of science is to explain the happenings of the universe. I feel there are still many things we do not know currently due to gaps in technology, skill, and knowledge, but I do feel that it is possible to explain anything and everything.

      No, humans need to dig further into the universe in order to comprehend everything in the universe. Albeit, with time and effort, we could discover pretty much everything.

      it does answer a lot of things, but not everything.


      I want to know what created the create. I want to know what set what we cal life in motion.

      You can say god, science can say big bang. But how can something be created from nothing?

      Science does not anything. I think the "Big Bang Theory" is so fake.

      Science answers some questions but what is left behind after that answer is more questions. Since we only know so much, we have that basic need and want to further our knowledge.

      Science does not answer everything. They can't prove everything that has happened billions of years ago.

      Of course science can't answer EVERYTHING. But it is continually developing and discovering more and more. I think the big bang theory might very well be proven to be wrong just like how the world was thought to be flat at one point. But at least the theory is based on more empirical data than say... supernatural nonesense.

      I think it can answer many things, but the more questions it answers, the more things it can't answer.

      I like your theory Logan and it is true :) I don't think science will be able to answer everything because as Logan said everything it already has answered will still have questions so really it's just a never ending circle.
