CSC's Logan Gage interviews senior fellow Jay Richards about how philosophers of science use demarcation criteria to determine what is or isn't science. One of the most commonly referred to demarcation points is falsifiability. Many scientists see the question of falsifiability as the gold standard in determining whether something is science or not. Richards defines what falsifiability is, why it's important and answers whether or not intelligent design can be falsified and is therefore scientific.
