Kmieciak 1 Zachary Kmieciak Dr. Molumby – TA: Vineela Bios 101 – 17101 2/1/2007 Medieval Science Introduction: Not all sciences are correct. To understand a science there must be experiments to prove whether a hypothesis is correct or incorrect. In this lab we will be looking at science hypothesis and see if they are correct. When a science first starts out there are many different hypothesis that are only based on what is known then. To prove whether a hypothesis is correct or incorrect we must do an experiment. Not all hypotheses can be tested. In order to test a hypothesis there must be physical evidence to be able to use. For this lab we will be testing three different folk magic or astrology. For our first experiment we will be testing to see if a quartz crystal can change the recessive mutation in flies. Many quartz crystals are found buried with ancient Egyptian royalty. They believed that the quartz possessed powers that could help the pharaoh in the afterlife. In this lab we will test to see if their hypothesis is correct. For our second experiment we will be testing the zodiac signs. In ancient Babylonia astrologers believed that a person’s future was already written in the stars. This belief has carried on and is used by many people. There are 8 different zodiac signs and each one corresponds based on a person’s date of birth. According to believers each sign’s future is already figured out and written in the stars. We will be testing to see if we can see a correlation to a person’s day based on their horoscope.

Kmieciak 2 For my third experiment I will be testing to see if the evil eye can really curse a person. The evil eye is still believed to be true and is most widely believed in the Middle East, South and Central Asian, and Mediterranean region of Europe. These people believe that if a person receives an evil eye they will be cursed. Upon receiving the evil eye they will be given a curse. In this curse they will lose something valuable to them.
