Science is the best thing we can do. And I think it is better for men to seek order in a chaotic manner instead to study chaos in an orderly fashion.

Henry Poincaré isn't the father of Chaos

... like some people said.
Science means indeed order. Therefore, it is a stupid thing to say that science studies chaos.
