science cant prove aliens are not true based on lack of evidence, so does that mean that aliens are true or false to a science believer? and based on what
PhiIosopher

Con

Aliens, Spirits, and God. None can be proven scientifically, the study of the physical universe as we know it. This shows the need for more than science and physics which is called metaphysics. It may not be supported by the masses as science is, but it is a necessary study to explaining existence. The basic idea is that metaphysics studies the realm beyond the physical universe, what religious individuals may call heaven.

Science was only equivalent to philosophy back when the Ancient Greeks were about.

That was only because they didn't have any semblance of science and only had philosophy.

Philosophy is an attempt on the part of man's unaided reason to give a fundamental explanation of the nature of things. (not just my definition)

Science is aided by experimentation.

You are correct when you say that metaphysics is a philosophical thing, however philosophy is the basis for everything in the field of science- the scientific method for example. All philosophy. So what is wrong with metaphysics as a pseudoscience and philosophy versus science which is based on the same Greek philosophies?

When I say that, I mean that it's a philosophical thing, and that metaphysics is something of a misnomer since it isn't related to physics or science at all.

Metaphysics=Information=0=Nothing=False

On a less spexist note, metaphysics is a pseudoscience.
