I can't answer that, until you've defined science. For more about this, see the OP.

why do you have to presume that people who do not agree with you do not know what science is?


Can you quote the part where WillS said that people who do not agree with him do not know what science is? Because I did not notice him saying that. Where did he say it?

As I've said, Niels Bohr was scientist.
And he said this:

Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real.



If Bohr ever said that (and I don't know if he did), then what do you think he meant by it?

What do you think it might mean to say that nothing is “real”?

It is wrong to think that the task of physics is to find out how Nature is. Physics concerns what we say about Nature.


Same question again - if Bohr ever did say that (and I don't know if he did), then what do you think he meant by it?

By the way - in neither of your quotes is Bohr attempting to define what he understood by the word "science"
