What is a science? What is their purpose, their task?

The ultimate task of a science is to find out what is true and what is untrue. Science has the task of separating faith and desires and feelings from what is in fact. Science has then the duty to say explicitly, what is wrong and what is right.

The first criterion to be a science is that all their statements are re-examine. For this are tools necessary. Tools in the form of factual relationships. In scientific mathematics, the basic relationship is 1 plus 1 equals 2, that's all. Rules  ariced from this, for example: "multiplication/division before addition/substraction", with which checks can be made which can shown incorrectly and correctly.

In physics, that is to say in nature, are present factual relations of a functional nature. These exist as functional principles, for example: all natural phenomena are caused by concrete things (there are no spirits!); A great is always the sum of many small things, but also: measuring instruments never lie!

And these relations led to rules, which determine the happenings of nature, which consist exclusively out of movements. Rules are for example: in theories are allowed only absolute, which are invariant, parameters. Theories are basically verbal and must contain a cause to effect prindiple and natural principles do not make exceptions.
These rules today are not respected by many even "great" theories. The reason is: these rules are so strict, that they can not be met in todays insufficient knowledge. As a substitute, theories are built out of mathematical basis: only supported by quantitative results.
Today's physics is not yet a science,
it does not have its own rules
nor is it testable or provable.

Out of the rules of physics, that is those of nature, criteria for the correctness of theories arise:
1.) Theories are verbal, because they must explain functionisms.
2. Theories must be universal, there are no exceptions.
3. Theories must always be able to answer all questions in their field.
4. Theories must not lead to new questions, but must be able to answer more questions than lead to their discovery.
5. Theories are either completely correct or completely false. A little bit wrong is as impossible than a little pregnant.

Only this theories, which satisfy at least the above-mentioned criteria, are most likely correct, thus describing truths of nature.
Many modern theories, ranging from flight theory to relativity theories, do not satisfy these criteria and are therefore definitely wrong. Therefore no physicist dares to say wrong or right.

The german physicist Thomas Görnitz in "Quanten sind anders" describes todays state of physics as a science so: "For the Greeks, physically axioms had to be expressive truths, but today one only requires that they are free of contradictions, while no more imagine possibilities are required". That is nothing less than the general capitulation of physical research to find truths. And he recognized further: "For no one of todays theories, olso not for the succesfullst ones, we can prove, that they are right".
