Observable vs Historical Science

Mar 8, 2023 | Blog | 0 comments


What is science?

When science comes to mind, you may think of white lab coats, microscopes and colorful glass vials of steaming chemicals. These portrayals do not define science. The definition of science is the study of the universe based on evidence that is observable, measurable, and repeatable. There are two types of science, observable and historical.
Let’s say you wanted to know if big rocks fall faster than little rocks. You could drop a big rock and a little rock out of a window and then observe which hits the ground first. You could repeat that exact same experiment over and over, to discover the same results. So, would your research discovery be scientific? Absolutely! They are observable, measurable, and repeatable.
On the other hand some things are impossible to observe, measure or repeat, such as what occurred in the past. Historical science cannot be observed, rather it makes assumptions of what occurred in the past by examining evidence in the present. Your presupposition or starting point could determine your conclusion: the facts are the same but your worldview influences the outcome.
What clues would suggest that dinosaurs died off recently and not millions of years ago? Soft tissue in dinosaur bones, man made dinosaur artifacts and pictographs, historical writings and multiple cultures sharing dragon legends are just a few historical evidences that support recent extinction. God is the creator of the universe and science confirms the Biblical record.
