    you cant just say that because physics underpins all that its 'the best'
    Each of the sciences are the best in their own way.
    WTH WHERE IS GEOLOGY/PHYSICAL GEOGRAPHY?

    Physics, chem, bio, geo are the naturalsciences in my opinion. When i say geology i also mean physical geograpgy

    In order of fundamentals
    Physics, chemistry, geology, biology

    Beauty
    Geology, biology, physics,chem

    mystery- how much we still dont know
    physics, biology, chemistry, geology

    logic
    physics, chem/bio/geo

    Importance in todays world
    bio, chem,geo,physics

    solve world problems

    destructive power- is this a good thing or a bad thing
    They can all be frighteningly destructive

    My point is that we can all have our own opinions, but we wouldn't be here today if it weren't for all the sciences, which each contribute to our existance on earth. Even though some sciences underpin others, all sciences underpin humanity

    This post is a pointless debate. You can say all those crap about physics, biology or chemistry. But at the end, when you go to hospital, you need someone who knows human anatomy, and he's not gonna know every cells in it, but he needs to know enough to solve your stomach ache problem. Its not that biologist don't have the fundamental way of looking at nature, but its just the scale in which biologists operate at. They are looking at complex behaviour of things, how they react to the environment and the general patterns of their behaviour. This does not exactly require you to know how every atoms in the organism behave, you just need to be good at noticing things. And their work is useful, drugs and stuffs like that are made by bioligst or biochemist studying how these things behave.
    Physicists on the other hand, have their own field. Studying everything from electrons to the whole galaxy motion and connecting how such big and small are somehow linked together. And ultimately, all the biology can be explained by chemistry and all the chemistry can be explained by quantum mechanics. But that does not mean anyone of them are more superior in some sense. Its just like what Richard Feynman said, just because we knows the rules of checkers ( which is not that complicated) does not mean that we can master it when the game is actually played, it is not just one or two checkers that is important, it is the behavour of the whole board. That is how I see it

    but i think physics is definately the most interesting to me. Also its the only subject that i want to do for the rest of my life

    i don't think you can argue that any science is more important than the other, obviously biological advancement is important, but were it not for physices and chemistry the equipment and medicine that allows precise research and treatment to be undertaken would not exist. PLUS all research and development requires funding, and physics/engineering is responisible for generating the majority of the worlds wealth, from the invention of the wheel and tools that allowed prehistoric man to carry out otherwise very hard/impossible tasks efficiently, to the computers and machinery that we use to design and make pretty much everything nowadays.

    Isnt it better to put this in a poll because it is easier to see the most popular science - i might do that.

    Also for me it has to be , without a doubt Chemistry.

    Biology for me. Although I can see physics being interesting if you just concentrate on astronomy

    That surprises me - I would have imagined that most people would have gone for the opposite end of the scientific spectrum (Biology). I like Physics the most though!

    Yer it was rather suprising, I would have thought that too

    chemistry is the best, anyone here actually like learning about plant hormones?

    And physics is based on theory rather than logic like maths.

    So chemistry all the way..

    Btw I do all sciences and maths so im not that biased..

    Apart from all that physics that is maths - but we won't talk about that.
