    Karl Popper came up with his theory of falsification as an alternative means to native inductivism so as to differentiate between science and non-science (Ladyman, 2002, p. 64).

This means that there must be a possibility that exists, such that the hypothesis can be proven wrong by observational or experimental results that contradict it (Chalmers, 1999, p. 62). The main features of falsification are with regards to

In science there has been and always will be continuous
