    of the real kind of science as in like experiments on tunneling electrons or ecological research in the amazon or work on carbon nanotubes id say almost none of it is ever faked - of the kind where some dude in a white coat on tv tells you why your face needs some chemical you never herd of before to stop you lookin 80 by the time your 25 id say all of it is faked

    Well if you are going to discuss Conspiracy Theories, how do you talk about skyscrapers collapsing without discussing how they are designed to hold themselves up.

    When have we heard the tons of steel and tons of concrete on every level of the twin towers? Wasn't the top of the north tower lighter and weaker?

    the distance aint really that far - why dyou believe the landings to be implausable just cuz its 384,000 miles - the blackbird sr 71 sure cant fly in space but at its top speed it would cover that distance in just 4 and a half days - then theres the prob of how we manage to bounce lasers off reflectors put there by apollo astronauts - no astronauts no reflectors - really the whole nobody landed on the moon thing has been debunked so many times

    This question should have been narrowed down to something specific, the question is too broad and vague. For example, we're using science and technology now, and it's just as real as the air we breathe.
    We use physics every sec of our lives without even knowing it.

    Peace!

    I would define "our" science as that which is created and developed by members of the human race. Scientific accomplishments don't belong to any one person or group. They belong to all of us, therefore they are "ours."
