    what so difrenet between it?

    They are both searching for truth and knowledge, with out philosophy science wouldn't exist, they both use observations to come up with a conclusion of the world, they both use logic to determine what is true  and what is not, philosophy uses logic to come up with a theory while science uses logic to do the same.

    the only difference is that scientist test it, but they can still be wrong, look at the triceratops thing recently. 

     

    Oxford dictionary define science as: the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behaviour of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment: 

    Philosophy: the study of the fundamental nature of knowledge, reality, and existence, especially when considered as an academic discipline.2 the study of the theoretical basis of a particular branch of knowledge or experience: 

    See where these things overlap a lot.

     

    I used the oxford dictionary as it is considered to be the standard in US, Canadian, and European countries for courts of law and any other applicable locations
