    Is history a science???

    In my opinion history is not a science. History is glorified interpretation; with evidence often taken as facts. "History is a set of lies that people have agreed upon," Napoleon What say you??

    Why Europeans were so interested in science since Renaissance while others weren't?

    Why is it that the Europeans were so interested in science since Renaissance? Countless scientists and mathematicians emerged and education majoring in science and maths became popular.
