Under the entry for "Physical Law":
In essence, modern science aims at minimal speculation about metaphysics. This results in spectacular efficiency of science both in explaining how universe works and in making our life better, longer and more interesting (via building effective shelters, transportation, communication and entertainment as well as helping to feed population, cure diseases, etc).
Modern science does such a great job because it studiously avoids metaphysics as much as possible, which has (insert metaphysical/philosophical judgments here)!
Science "builds effective shelters"? It makes "entertainment"? Is "science makes our life better" a scientific, metaphysics-minimizing claim?
It so often seems like the biggest boosters of science are the ones most dissatisfied with it - and they show their dissatisfaction by pretending "science" is doing what something else (usually an unreflective and simplistic philosophy or metaphysics) is actually responsible for.
And it also seems that one could make quite an interesting argument that "science" has done next to nothing for humanity. Engineering, on the other hand, has done some tremendous things (and to be fair, not all of them great.)
Of course, that argument should spook any science-booster, since it threatens to make engineering do to science what science supposedly did to metaphysics. Somehow a Futurama quote seems apt: "I'll build my own theme park! With hookers! And blackjack! In fact... forget the theme park!"
