Mathematics is a thing of deduction. We use deductive logic to find "truths".(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Science is a thing of induction. We use inductive logic to find "truths".

All Mathematics is based on postulates. Postulates are "truths" found through inductive logic (or they are simply "definitions").

If postulates are found inductively and Science operates inductively... Perhaps our Science is so young that we are still in the "finding postulates" stage? Perhaps later we will progress to theorums and the like... Or maybe Technology is the study of theorums based on the postulates studied by Science? Perhaps that, perhaps the other, perhaps both... What do you all think?
