|The key difference between science and apologetics is that scientific inquiry begins with the data and moves toward the best explanation...|
Science, therefore, seeks consilience. Whatever explanation is proposed for a set of observations must not only be the best fit for those data, it must also fit within the framework of all the other observations and conclusions drawn in the field.
I agree that this is what science should be.
