This question was presented on a private Facebook page as an example of a theist challenge to critical thinking and support for science. My response:
"It works. It's not perfect, and does not deal in absolutes but
probability, but it can be shown that it is the best we have for determining 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.
