Rational proof is governed by the rules of logic, considered by many to be the basis of good thinking. Testing ideas through the use of continuous questioning and thoughtful examination. Empirical proof is proof arising from careful observation of events in nature; proof that forms the basis for scientific discovery. Form of proof in both natural and social science, including sociology. An attempt to support or refute an idea on the basis of independent observation by many individuals. Linda
