What is science?

Whilst avoiding anti-religious rhetoric, Greta Christina* addresses '10 Myths and Truths About Atheists'.

I recommend reading it, whatever your personal beliefs, but I'll highlight the paragraph which had greatest resonance with me:

Science isn't primarily a set of theories and facts: science is primarily a method, one that sorts good information from bad, useful theories from mistaken or useless ones. Science is a method for perceiving the world that relies, not on authority and intuition, but on rigorous examination of evidence and a willingness to question any theory.

*: How's that for an example of reverse nominative determinism? An atheist writer called 'Greta Christina'?
