"BHA Science Group Vision: A world in which important decisions are
made by applying the scientific method to evidence rather than
according to superstition." (April 2008)

(from the Latin scientia, 'knowledge') refers to any systematic knowledge or practice or to a system of acquiring knowledge based on the scientific method, as well as to the organized body of knowledge gained through such research.

Scientific Method
(wikipedia) is a body of techniques for investigating phenomena, acquiring new knowledge, or correcting and integrating previous knowledge. It is based on gathering observable, empirical and measurable evidence subject to specific principles of reasoning. The scientific method consists of the collection of data through observation and experimentation, and the formulation and testing of hypotheses.

Scientific researchers propose hypotheses as explanations of phenomena, and design experimental studies to test these hypotheses. These steps must be repeatable in order to predict dependably any future results. Theories that encompass wider domains of inquiry may bind many hypotheses together in a coherent structure.
