Karl Popper contended that the central question

Karl Popper contended that the central question in the philosophy of science was distinguishing science from non-science.[3]
Early attempts by the logical positivists grounded science in observation while non-science was non-observational and hence nonsense.[4] Popper argued that the central feature of science was that science aims at falsifiable claims (i.e. claims that can be proven false, at least in principle).[5]
No single unified account of the difference between science and non-science has been widely accepted by philosophers, and some regard the problem as unsolvable or uninteresting.[6]
This problem has taken center stage in the debate regarding evolution and creationism. Scientists say that creationism does not meet the criteria of science and should thus not be treated on equal footing as evolution.[7]
