Operational VS. Historical Science

By Dr. John Hartnett, PhD

Historical science explained as compared with operational or experimental science. Historical science is closer to forensic science, which tries to reconstruct events in the unobserved past. That makes it very weak and possibly, as such, is not even science under the most common definition. Nevertheless the evidence is always interpreted within the worldview of the researcher carrying out the investigation. Evidence does not speak for itself. This then must be considered in all investigations into the origin of the universe, the planet and life itself.
