Of course there is no one true answer, but that's why this is a discussion!

Talk about the important advances made in different fields, etc.

Hey! So when it comes to science my favorite is Chemistry, mostly because I love learning how things interact with each other and how to use this knowledge on my unsuspecting D&D players. There are many uses for it, and most medicine, are a chemical mixtures that will affect the chemistry of our bodies in order do deal with pains to various mental illnesses. So yay chemicals!

I like Physics, because it is the most basic approach to understanding our world. All other sciences seem way more specialized to me. That is of course not to say that they aren't important or interesting in their own right, but Physics is still the base they all rest upon.

If you look at it practically, it should be physics, unless you consider math a science.

My chem prof had a good pictogram comic thing of this

Its like :

math >>>>>physics>chem>bio>psych

Psych is applied biology, bio is applied chem, chem is applied physics, and physics is applied math . aka math rules the world haha.

Oh I don't even want to go there, because I'll be talking all day. But I love science so here I am.

Personally I like the science in wildlife, because people began to understand the importance of having a healthy environment after species started going extinct. (It's sad to think they realize this after species went extinct and some where on the brink of extinction) Good thing out of this though are the creations of National parks, National monuments and wildlife refuges, along with many wildlife protection agencies. In the making of these scientist and wildlife managers (of the time) where studying the interactions and complex diversity of these ecosystems. <- that's my calling there.

I mean we'd be creating (and still are (with the deaths of the oceans and such)) if it weren't for the halt in habitat destruction and useless slaughtering of animals. Now we have to worry about the oceans. One good side is Obama (keep your opinions to yourself) has recently claimed a large patch of ocean as protected national monument. (kinda the first of its kind) And hopefully this will continue to happen and other critical parts be set aside as a protected area.

With the better understandings of the interactions in wildlife through science, we can better understand where these critical areas are and how we can better protect them. Face it, without wildlife as our support for our society, we wouldn't need anything else, because, well, we'd be going extinct too.:)

I'm going to have to go with medicine and not just chemistry. Medicine is more than chemistry. It's also anatomy and herbology.

I'm not a science buff, but I like the astronomy, biology (including marine biology), and geology. Stars, critters, and rocks. =)

Biology! Specifically, plant biology (bias: getting PhD in this). Norman Borlaug is my spirit animal. Not many people can claim to have saved the lives of a billion people.
