What if the concept of science didn't exist?

Science is a PROCESS for logically evaluating phenomenon. It is NOT a set of facts and figures.

In the scientific process one: 1 - observes a phenomenon, 2 - hypothesizes about the nature of that phenomenon, then 3 - Performs controlled, doccumented, and repeatable experimentation to prove or disprove that hypothisis. Based on the information gathered from the experiment, the hypothisis may be modified and the process repeated. If there is evidence which suggests that the hypothisis may be true, it can be called a theory. If there is experimental proof that the hypothisis is true, then it becomes known as a law.

But the scientific method is not the only method. Good-old trial and error has led to a lot of human advancement as well. If no one put a procedure in place we might be a few years behind technologically, but it wouldn't be the end of the world.


Finally, on the third page someone mentions what science is. Guess and check.

Laws are sets of observations with no known exceptions e.g. Newton's laws of motions. Even here Einstein showed that Newtonian laws of motion do not apply at relativistic speeds or for subatomic sized objects. Not sure why they are still referred to as laws except they are much simpler equations and apply very broadly with know constraints.

Considering how ubiquitous the scientific method is even in everyday life it's hard to imagine its nonexistence. If no one ever formed repeatably testable hypotheses, performed experimentation, and examined the results for the sake of drawing conclusions I'm not even sure how problem solving would work.

The world would go on; just not the one you're use to.
