In your warm up, commit 5 to 10 minutes practicing and refining either the Essential Elements of Science post, here are a few axioms and prerequisites that are assumed (in CrossFit and between Eric Malzone, Jeff Glassman, and I at least) before any meaningful discussion can be had:

‘Science is a branch of knowledge, the objective branch, and is ultimately public.  It is embodied in Cause and Effect models of the Real World, where

a Conjecture is an uncontradicted Cause & Effect,

a Hypothesis is a Conjecture that accounts for all relevant facts (measurements compared to standards) in its domain, and predicts consequential phenomena or relationships,

a Theory is a Hypothesis for which one non-trivial prediction has been validated by fresh facts,

and a Law is a Theory for which all possible consequences of the model have been validated to a known accuracy.

Science has two branches, Basic Science in domains of the natural world, and Technology in domains of manmade objects and processes.”
