Why Science offers COMPLETELY nothing to Understanding

The world is as it is. ANY phenomenon can be explained by a NUMBER of theories! Who can tell which one is “right”? Right and wrong do not belong in the field of science, which creates models for the interpretation of reality!

It is really weird that we keep on using the word “explain” for science. “Science explains that”, “science explains the other” et cetera et cetra… Science does not “explain” anything if you ask my humble opinion.  We observe a phenomenon and then we build a model which behaves as close to the observed phenomenon as possible. The KEY here is this: we create the model after we have observed the phenomenon. We do not explain the phenomenon! We just replicate it!

Why should only science take advantage of that reality which everyone sees (i.e. scientists and non-scientists as well) ? Science provides scientific models. We see a light turning on. Science interprets that via electrism (a completely HUMAN-MADE idea). Other attribute that to God. Others to strings. Others to atoms. Others to waves. So? The fact pre-exists all explanations and you cannot take “reality” into your favor based on your preferred theory!

Weird? Yes.

Wrong? No.

PS. Inventions? Yes, technology is important and usefull. But has nothing to do with scientific models or the role of science in understanding the cosmos! See the atomic theory change in the future years: no matter how much models change (radically), the CD players will continue to play music! Think about it for a minute. You know it to be true…

    Obviously, the models of science have an incredible worth because they are the sole reason modern technologies came about in the first place. While science does not explain the reasons anything is or the purpose of reality, our lives, etc, it doesn’t claim to be. However, It is easily arguable that science as a model for explaining phenomenon is the most worthwhile one because it provides advancements in our understanding of phenomenon which has practical results for life itself. The models(such as quantum physics and plate tectonics) can’t be claimed to be capital T True, but they explain so much and we can make predictions, inventions, and save lives. This is why science as a model takes precedence. And any scientist who claims science is the model to evaluate cosmic mysteries, or the reason for life is misunderstanding the tenets which science rests on. Yes, a model that explain why a CD player works can change can be altered, but without that model it could have never been created.

      Science simply formumates theories which are then used to model things we see. Theories changes all the time. And yet things keep “working”…

      And if you seek “practical results” then turn to religion. It offers much more in that aspect, since it deals with how to live here and now.
