Theological and Philosophical Biography and Dictionary
Similar to the Verifiability Principle, but goes one step beyond by asking for the criteria by which a statement can be proven false. E.g., "What would it take to prove that Babe Ruth was not the greatest baseball player of all time?"
Falsifiability principle Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
English Wikipedia - The Free Encyclopedia
Falsifiability or refutability of a statement, hypothesis, or theory is the inherent possibility that it can be proven false. A statement is called falsifiable if it is possible to conceive of an observation or an argument which negates the statement in question. In this sense, falsify is synonymous with nullify, meaning to invalidate or "show to be false".
