I will admit some criticize Popper for being so dead set in favor of deductive methods and against inductive scientific methods, but his point is deductive science that tests and verifies with reliable evidence is the essential test of reliable and credible science. Falsifiability (testability) is a big and important word in the world of Popper Science. Seems Einstein agreed about experiments and evidence as controlling and dispositive.
The writings and teachings and ruminations of Popper have had a big effect on scientific endeavors and the philosophy of science and scientific epistimology.
The Popper template was a key to the Supreme Court Opinion by Blackmun in Daubert v Merrill Dow (1993) that established new and better guidance for judges on how to evaluate the admissibility of scientific testimony and evidence.
Here is a short essay on how the tautology becomes the “consensus” that shows the unreliability of the catastrophic warming/climate change/modeling crowd.
If every bit of evidence, even refutation is made into part of the proof of the thesis, it is circular tautological argumentation and not science at all.
if the theory can’t be refuted by evidence that is contrary to the premise then we are in a mythical world, aren’t we, the world of cargo cult science, where evidence is irrelevant.
