One of the mods said something I found curious
Migrated to History, but now that I think about it maybe counter-factual really isn't appropriate anywhere on SE -- outside possibly worldbuilding?
I get the phrase, but don't really know how to understand it. Can we not ask questions about counter-factuals, about e.g. science, or history?
It seems obvious that questions can include counterfactuals, if discussing laws of nature, we might want to refer to and illustarte "counterfactuals". Even if they can't be asking for one.
