Hi All,
This is a fishing expedition - at some point in the past, some individuals on this list have given definitions of "science" that I thought were pretty good.  But now when I'm trying to find a good one, I can't, and I also can't remember who wrote the definitions I liked so that I could email them personally.  So, if anyone out there has a definition of science they really like, please feel free to send it my way.
