3 questions

This semester has taught me a lot about thinking. Here are my three questions for the future:


1. If science is striving to be less wrong, is there anything, even one little tiny thing, that we can call a fact? I'm living and breathing--I'd call that a fact, can we?

2. How much of biology is simply an overlapping topic put under another name? We did a lot of what I would call chemistry, and I'm wondering if we separated the two sciences incorrectly? Do we need a new, third science?

3. Is medecine and taking care of yourself fighting nature? How would we function if we didn't go to the doctors and just rested and healed ourselves without substances or operations? We tend toward entropy, so should we just let nature take its course?


Thanks so much, it's been a great semester!
