If you ask "what is Static Electricity?" or "what is Current Electricity", different people will give you different answers. This will occur  because people cannot acknowledge upon the actuall defenition of the words "static electricity" and "current electricity". This is a serious problem. In science, we want a term like "static electricity" to have just one meaning. When a scientific term aquires several different meanings, people become confused, and they can get into useless arguments about what "static" and "current" really are. Here is a possible solution to this problem. Don't ask "what is the difference between static and current electricity". Instead ask "what are the various definitions of the words 'static electricity' and 'current electricity'?" Also ask "how do the meanings of the words cause trouble?"
