If science was not created or discovered a long time ago, we would probably still be asking ourselves why things happen the way they are up until now. We should thank the people behind these written proofs of science because if they did not have the urge to this, we would have been still confused. Written proofs regarding the existence of science is much more help than experiencing it only in our everyday life. Science magazines never stop to provide us with what is discovered, developed, and debunked in the field. More amazingly, they were able to explain to us, clearly and precisely, what is happening, why is it happening, and how is it happening.
