(…) a true statement about an event, phenomenon or process in the real material world must be:

(a) capable of independent verification by different observers;

(b) internally self consistent;

(c) consistent with other statements about related events, phenomena, or process; and

(d) capable of generating verifiable prediction or hypothesis, about what will happen to the event, phenomenon or process if it is operated upon in certain ways – if we act upon it

– Lewontin R.C., Rose S., Kamin L. Not in our genes, 1984, p. 32
