Is it correct that an experiment in which one factor is not measurable is not scientific? This is not a rhetorical question – I am looking for an answer.
I ask this because, a couple of nights ago, I had a neoption* that this was so. I suspect, no more, because I cannot remember, that although the experiment may not be scientific it may be true – that science is not the final arbiter.
Now, having written the paragraph immediately above, I am more convinced that although the experiment may not be scientific it may be true.
* neoption – see Ian’s Dictionary page above.
