(1)Science:
"The process of evaluating answers/solutions to questions/problems,thus gather valid(meaningful:consistant with existing framework of scientific knowledge) and reliable(uniformly successful in passing scientific trials) information,using nothing but the scientific method."

I want to understand the boundaries and limitations of this scientific method and a clear demarkation of valid and reliable information.

(2)God:
A term that refers to the most superior being or in Einstein's words 'an objective reality'. All the religions,myths,beliefs describe Gods with more or less same characteristics.

In a forum entitled 'God and Science', can anything asserted be good science (since God is something outside the sphere of scientific method). The question that comes out is "Is it appropriate to predict anything about nonfactual and nonscientific phenomena such as God(s) on the basis of information gathered on nothing but sound scientific grounds?"

(3) What are gentle questions? And who is to decide that?
