What do you understand by "science"?

Although I have my proper idea about what science is,
I want to know what your idea about it!

Is science a method?
A set of knowledge?
a verb?
a group of people?
Can physics, math, logic, economics, medicine, art, dance, law, cooking,... be called sciences? why or why not?
Or are all above questions totally missing the point?

    Jul 15 2011: Is a set of knowledge systematically organized! That way any new idea need to be explained and coherent with ols ideas. If something can be explained, the science reject the new idea, or the idea change the science!
