A quick meta-observation about this thread:

Much of the discussion concerning science, and how it is or is not base on
belief structures, has been covered by the discipline of "Philosophy of
Science." Any good research library can yield many books on this subject.

An OK introductory text I read when I took an intro course on Philosophy of
Science is:

"Scientific Knowledge," Janet A. Kourany.Wadsworth Publishing Co., 1987.
ISBN 0-534-06444-2.
