Can science define and measure real value and worth of a piece of art or an item of poetry?

April 24, 2014

I started a discussion on my favorite religious education discussion forum on the topic “Does science support Atheism, positively?”.

The viewers could read/join the discussion at the forum accessing the link given below or they may comment at this blog Paarsurrey; and then after due deliberation form their own sincere opinion independently.

This is precisely why acceptance of science is a denial of super-nature. While science does not address the supernatural and cannot prove it does not exist, it is because super-nature is non-sensible.

If super-nature, being non-sensible, left so much as a fingerprint on nature, science would falter.

A piece of art or an item of poetry.

Can science define and measure its real value and worth? Please
