The Definition of Science

When discussing, debating or studying the origin of

The Definition of Science

Science in layman's terms, is the precise study of how things are, work and operate but to present a precise definition for this discussion, the term Science must be broken down into two classes.

1. Empirical science (or operation science) is an organized study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through present observation and experiment. Example: An ichthyologist (a person who studies fish) would observe the habits of a sturgeon (a bony fish) in it's own current domain or habitat. This form of science has a precise protocol that must be adhered to..the protocol is known as the Scientific Method which contains the following steps.

1. The Postulate must be Observable or Seen Occurring
2. The Occurring Must be Repetitive or capable of repeatable experimental verification (Not a One Time Event)
3. The postulate must withstand a falsifiability or truth experiment conceived which the failure of the experiment would disprove the assumption.

If any of the above steps fail, then the Postulate, Assumption or Question formulated by the Scientist is deemed false. This is extremely important because Evolution
(Species Transition) has never been Observed in Nature.

2. Forensic science (or origin science) is the study of things no longer occurring in the present. It is an attempt to explain how certain events happened or were caused in the past. The events are unrepeatable and cannot be observed. A type of Scientist that uses Forensic Science would be a Paleontologist who make speculations about bones and fossils of a sturgeon or sturgeon like fish that died eons ago.
