The answer is a cautious “yes”.
Speculations are not science. Science is more cautious and conservative; but good speculations, even while not correct, can lead to science.
A good speculation is based on science and facts and a broad speculation, that is also good, is one that pushes at the outer limits of the science and facts.

I will correct all errors of fact or attribution and I reserve the right to change my mind. Don’t expect complete consistency. In fact, the nature of speculation is such that contrary views can held at the same time. Merely because I speculate it does not mean I believe.
