Two Kinds of Science

A War on Science?

This is Ken Ham, whose ministry has produced the family friendly Answers Bible Curriculum.


Science is usually defined as what we can learn about the natural world—using the scientific method or with our five senses. But did you know there are two kinds of science?

You see, observational science fits the definition of science very well. It’s done in the present and is directly testable, observable, and repeatable.

But historical science is very different. It deals with the past, so it isn’t directly testable, observable, or repeatable. You simply can’t practice the scientific method on the past!

So, what you believe about the past determines how you’ll interpret that evidence.

With creation and evolution, the problem isn’t the evidence—it’s the interpretation of that evidence.
