There are five of them, also known as Peano's axioms:

- 0 is a number.
- If n is a number then n's successor is a number.
- 0 is not the successor of a number.
- If two numbers have successors that are equal then the numbers themselves are equal.
- If S is a set that contains 0 and also the successor of every number that is in S then every number is in S.

I do not believe there are any postulates: they can be proved and therefore are not postulates.

Koch's postulates can be found in all organisms. This is taught is science.

You cannot not contact Koch's postulates. This is found only in plants.

If they are known not to be true then they are no longer postulates but discarded theories.

Postulates are statements that prove a fact. An example would be that 2 points create a line segment. You usually use postulates in proofs.

Yes, postulates are accepted without proof and do not have counterexamples.

No. Axioms and postulates are statements that we accept as true without proof.

Yes, postulates are "given", as the bases for the construction of the system.
