FALSIFIABILITY

was first argued by Austria-born British philosopher Karl Popper (1902 - 1994) as one of the staple canons of the general idea surrounding a science. If a concept can be disproved or proven incorrect, it is falsifiable.

FALSIFIABILITY: "It is now a widely held belief that if a concept or a theory cannot be falsified (such as the existance of a God) then it cannot therefore be classed scientific or credible."
