Inductions are testable; deductions are not testable.
Inductive reasoning is used to develop testable hypotheses; deductive reasoning is used to derive general principles.
"Human cells are similar to dog cells" is a statement that is derived from inductive reasoning. "All cells are fundamentally similar" is a statement derived from deductive reasoning.
Inductive reasoning flows from the specific to the general; deductive reasoning flows from the general to the specific.
Inductive reasoning, as a component of discovery science, is used to study the supernatural; deductive reasoning, as a component of hypothesis-driven science, is used to study the natural.
