When was science invented?
" Francis Bacon is one of the most influential
figures in the history of science, even though he never really
discovered or invented anything himself. Instead, what Bacon invented,
more or less, was the modern scientific enterprise itself."

Another Point :
"science is a human invention, even though it is worshiped and served
like a pagan god. Science is about tools, its first and foremost a
philosophy, originally it was called natural philosophy. The term
'science' is a word that simply means 'to know', there are two kinds of
knowledge. The kind you know intellectually (theory) and the kind you
experience (practice). Science is the kind you experience. Scientific
theory is just establish facts organized systematicly. Eventually these
theories can be so well establiched that they are called laws, like

Now my personal point of view :
No one invented science itself, science is the factual search for knowledge. What is science ? Science of the mind ? Psychology
Science of the stars ? Astronomy
Science of Religion ? Theology
Science of numbers ? Mathematics
Who invented that 1 + 1 = 2 ?
No one will ever know, its just a fact, a SCIENTIFIC fact. It is proven.
Science starts with a theory, theories are tried, tested, sometimes even ridiculed. Should enough poeple agree ona point of view the theory slowly become facts, facts eveolve into laws, such as Newtons three laws of gravity.
Did Isaac Newton "invent" this ? no, he merely made gravity factual in the sense that we can scientifically work and measure it and or its effects.
