    Yes, the two are very separate. Science is concrete and proven and philosophy are matters of opinion and discussion. It is like NASA vs Plato...LOL good topic for discussion.

    In ancient times, philosophy was the Science, but as we learned more and improved technology, Science transcends Philosophy.

    Science is into fact proving, while Philosophy generates questions that only science can provide answers to them.

    They are hardly enemies.  Historically, humanity has used philosophy to create questions that science endeavors to prove.  What we learn from science is then applied to the general knowledge, that is the base of philosophy, which then creates new questions for science to help with and the cycle goes on and on.  Science and philosophy might be academic adversaries, but both help humanity understand the Universe and ourselves better.  They have that in common.
