A debate about my lead-in for the Science article:

Science[edit]

Please stop messing with the lead of this article, especially when your revised definition does not include a source. In general, science is not the mathematical description of nature. An observation of bird migratory patterns can qualify as science without involving any mathematics. You can discuss your proposed changes in the talk page of the article if you so wish.UBER (talk) 20:31, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

WhatUberCryxic said. This article is NOT, repeat NOT, an article about natural science. We have one of those already. This article is about the general meaning of the word, and includes political science, library science, and so on. Also, it includes the historical use of the word "science" before people started using it as shorthand for "natural science" (and then claiming that political science is "misnamed!"). All this was carefully done.

If you want to mess with the definition of "natural science" go to THAT article, but even THERE, I think you'll still be out of luck in requiring use of mathematics. What about geometry? Even mathematics is merely a type of shorthand for logical operations, and natural science involves connecting these to physical prediction. However if you can predict something in logical terms without writing any mathematical symbols, you're still left with logical statements of prediction. IF I stand in my kitchen, hold my cup out over the floor, and let go, THEN it will fall to the floor. Logical IF-->THEN. That's a scientific statement and there's no math at all (unless you want to claim simple linguistic logic as pre-math, but then what's your point? Boole and Bourbaki have their own articles). If you choose to put logical statements involving physical events in symbolic terms, you're not changing them into natural science. They already were natural science; all you're doing is shortening the notation. SBHarris 20:49, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

Talk:Constellation_program#Alternatives[edit]

I just wanted to give you a heads up about a discussion I started and possible revent of a change you made to Constellation program. Feel free to debate the issue at Talk:Constellation_program#Alternatives. Aalox (talk) 16:42, 20 April 2010 (UTC)


Proposed deletion of Harold finger[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Harold finger has been proposed for deletion because, under Wikipedia policy, all newly created biographies of living persons must have at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article. The nominator also raised the following concern:

All biographies of living people created after March 18, 2010, must have references.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one.
