There is no single father of science as you may know that they are different categories of science such as physics, chemistry. Many people, besides the ones the books mentioned contributed to the sciences. Therefore there is no father of science but there are fathers of different discoveries and principles of sciences. Science is too broad for a single person to be the father of it.
Examples include; Willard Gibbs is considered father of energetics, Ernest Rutherford is father of nuclear physics, Isaac newton is father of calculus and mechanics, Mendeleev is father of the periodic table of elements and Galileo, Einstein and Newton are referred to as fathers of modern physics.
