science ... because it never changes


Your definition of science doesn't correspond to either my definition or the ones I found on google. Your statement is probably meant to express something closer to 'natural laws do not change over time'.

Google term: define:science

1. "the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment."

The above definition refers to a process carried out by people. As a process that doesn't define the nature of the universe but even that changes over time (for instance how statistics are applied and used have changed over time.)

2. "a particular area of this."

Presumably this definition is not applicable to your usage at all since is used to name a discipline and not what the discipline achieves.

3. "a systematically organized body of knowledge on a particular subject."

This is closest to your usage but it definitely can and has changed over time.
