    Science (from Latin scientia, meaning "knowledge") is a systematic enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about the universe. In an older and closely related meaning (found, for example, in Aristotle), "science" refers to the body of reliable knowledge itself, of the type that can be logically and rationally explained.

    The difference between science and the fuzzy subjects is that science requires reasoning, while those other subjects merely require scholarship. If it can’t be expressed in figures, it is not science; it is opinion.
