Two kinds of Science


Part 13



This is Ken Ham, heading up the ministry that built a full-size Noah’s Ark south of Cincinnati.


Did you know there are two different kinds of science?

“Observational science” is the kind of science that uses the scientific method. It’s directly testable, observable, and repeatable. It makes medical innovations, puts a rover on Mars, and develops smart phones.

“Historical science” is very different. You see, it deals with the past. And the past isn’t directly testable, observable, or repeatable. So what you believe about the past determines how you interpret evidence you see today.

That’s why creationists and evolutionists come to two completely different interpretations of the same evidence. We have different starting points.
