Scientists & Judges (distinctions)

Nov 2017
Scientists do things to learn about nature, such as observe, discover, explore, hypothesize, theorize, and conduct experiments.

Judges, on the other hand, are government officials who preside over legal cases, to do things such as to settle a dispute or charge someone with committing a crime.

A judge is not the go-to individual for questions about science, theories about nature, or discoveries made in nature; that would be scientists. If you have a question about science, go to a scientist; not a judge. Same goes with questions about the law; if you have a dispute or allegation, you go to a judge, not a scientist, to address those things.
