    I have been doing this scientific crossword puzzle for my e.s. class for over a week now and I find it very difficult even when I use my class handouts, textbook, and some online references... I have some questions that I would like answered for my sake and for these crossword puzzles.... I got most of them but some seem so easy but do not fit in the boxes...

    What is the study of the natural universe? ( I thought geology or ecology, but the box sequence is ? ? ? E ? ? E.

    The major reason for the rejection of science in the past (or even today).


    A theory which unites many related subdisciplines or theories, i.e. plate tectonics.


    A prior understanding or way of thinking (a "given").



    These seem very tough, you can check out the puzzle I have been working on right here = http://servercc.oakton.edu/~billtong...0/scimethd.htm

    Please help me out with some with this because I really need it. :?

    "Science", I'd assume.

    A prior understanding or way of thinking (a "given").
    "Assumption" fits, I'd want to see a connecting letter or 2 match up though before I'd say for certain.

    I'd take a stab at the others if you could supply the letters you know, since that narrows down the possible answers considerably.

    FEAR

    A theory which unites many related subdisciplines or theories, i.e. plate tectonics.[/quote]

    -Sorry, I'm drawing a blank & have to get to work. I'm sure I could figure it out if I had the time to work the puzzle and think on it, but good luck on the rest.

    ASSUMPTION The hint should actually read "an a priori understanding..."

    The word for this spot is "Consistent" It fits with all the intersections.
