About Scientific Principles

    Early explanations of natural phenomena were fascinating but not very dependable . Some of the early Egyptian, Greek, Islamic, and Asian theories, as well as those from other cultures, established great approaching into the structure and functions of animals, plants, matter, meteorology , agriculture, Earth, and astronomy.

    Our ancestors had the interest but lacked the means for forming truly precise explanations and conclusions about nature
as the understanding of cause and effect, and objective use of controlled experimentation was yet to be developed.

    The modern sciences began when people learned how to explain nature by objectively observing events, asking questions that
could be answered by making reliable measurements, using mathematics, and then considering probabilities to make reasonable predictions.

   This process led to ‘‘operational facts’’ that continued to be upgraded and corrected by the ‘‘self-correcting’’ nature of modern science.

However, testing theories and hypotheses in a controlled situation
developed late in human history and thus science, as we think of it, was slow to advance in ancient times.

     The development and accomplishment of scientific processes
increased the ‘‘growth of knowledge,’’ as well as the rate of growth of science from the seventeenth to the twenty first centuries.

During this period science accelerated at an amazing exponential pace, and this growth will most likely continue throughout the twenty-first century and beyond, particularly in the biological sciences based on quantum theory.

   None of our present understanding of the universe, nature, and ourselves would have been possible without men and women using the processes and procedures of scientific investigations.

     We hope to present a historical aspect for the important principles, laws, theories, hypotheses, and concepts that reflect this amazing progression of scientific descriptions and explanations of nature . So follow my articles :)
