The idea that science is like a story is very interesting and a little hard to wrap my mind around it because we've always been taught that science is truth.  I actually like the idea that sceience is not complete facts because when you think about it in that way, then there is no reason to feel the need that one needs to choose between their own personal views and the ideas that science presents.

I really like the notion that one cannot believe in science, i think that it is a mistake that a lot of people make.  I believe that one is able to be a better scientist when they regard science as something that should not be believed.  It allows the scientist to continue making observation and be open to new ideas without sticking to one concrete belief.  Science is about questioning to me and so one should always be questioning and making new observations.
