"Science giving us counter-intuitive results, results that we’d never arrive at using our limited experience and logic alone, is one of the most spectacular thing about the entire enterprise. If we want to learn about the Universe itself, we have to not only ask it questions about itself, but listen to its answers."
A good example of why science is necessary to best understand reality.
SCIENCE (from the Latin for 'knowledge') informs wisdom, reason and humanism. This is a 4-legged worldview within reality that maximizes well-being for individuals and society.
