". . . two special gifts that science provides.
The First Gift: Science gives us the capacity to infer the existence of things we cannot see directly through the systematic observation of what we can see. Again, gravity is a prime example.
The Second Gift: Science gives us the capacity to evaluate alternative interpretations of a given observation.
These two gifts from science enable us to cherish all the more our capacity to have personal experiences. Science enables us to go beyond our personal experiences (the first gift) as well as help us interpret all of it, both the visible and the invisible (the second gift).
Though science is clearly very powerful, it is only as powerful as the human mind that brings it into being. And the potential power of the human mind is vast."
