Why Science?

I remember reading somewhere, when we first started homeschooling, that some "expert" advised noobs (you know, newbies) to just skip science for the first year or two, and add it in later.

We didn't take that advice.

For one thing, with three boys, science   is   the   most   fun   of   all.

But besides that... we look around and we're just plain curious.  Why, oh why, is there so much variety? 

We were watching an episode of Blue Planet last weekend with my parents and we were all absolutely astounded at the bizarre variety of life found at the depths of the ocean.  And why?

He created it, Colossians 1:16, by Him and for Him...  for His pleasure. 

We sang it in Messiah, at Christmas.

And the glory of the Lord will be revealed, and all mankind together will see it.
Isaiah 40:5

And that's why we study science.

I couldn't imagine omitting science from a curriculum, but maybe that is because I'm a biochemistry major! Science is the most fun- English Lit doesn't let you blow things up, after all (g)!
