@izzythepush,
He seems to think theory means guess. The wilder the better.

@edgarblythe,
In ordinary conversation it does, most of us recognise the difference between that and scientific terminology.

@izzythepush,
I used to not know myself. It's hard to discuss with someone who intentionally refuses to learn it.

@edgarblythe,
Exactly, he insists on inserting his own vernacular and interpretations into the conversation and God help anyone who won’t accept it.

@The Anointed,
Don't confuse your partisan wacko Trump is Jesus conspiracies with scientific theory backed up by rigorous observational evidence, corollaries, postulates, axioms and (never disproven) assumptions...

@TheCobbler,
Please reveal a current theory that has been proven to be factual, and yet still remains a theory, which is an unproven hypotheses until it can be proven to be factual.

That's not only pure double talk, it is a deliberate misstatement of scientific theory. A proven hypothesis in science, not daily conversation necessarily, is a theory, meaning it is proven beyond a doubt.

@edgarblythe,
How about the theory of gravity?

Annoited can check that one out from somewhere up high.

@izzythepush,
I would give up trying to talk to him, but I believe it's a plan with him to drive science-oriented posters away. That way he could work his will on the credulous.

@edgarblythe,
A theory must be backed with data and facts without any doubt whatsoever. If there is any doubt, the theory can’t be accepted as real or factual.

@The Anointed,
It has to earn the designation of theory by being proven. Unproven it's hypothesis.

A hypothesis is either a suggested explanation for an observable phenomenon, or a reasoned prediction of a possible causal correlation among multiple phenomena. In science, a theory is a tested, well-substantiated, unifying explanation for a set of verified, proven factors. A theory is always backed by evidence; a hypothesis is only a suggested possible outcome, and is testable and falsifiable.

And now personal insults.

So much for turning the other cheek.

You’re as far from Christ as it’s possible to get.

@edgarblythe,
Until a theory has been proven, beyond a shadow of a doubt, it remains no more than a theory.

Why do you think that it is referred to as a theory and not as a fact?

WRONGEDY WRONG WRONG I wish you guys on the ID sie would at least take some time to learn what the **** youre talking about, rather than to just make **** up and fire it for effect, (hoping that some other moron will buy it)


SO, a theory in science CONTAINS th facts in a body of testable falsifiable evidence that wxplains HOW something happens.
All the facts support the theory and nothing refutes it.


THATS WHAT SCIENCE MEANS WHEN IT USES THE TERM THEORY.
Like Atomic theory, germ theory, The THEORY of Continntal Drift, GAME THEORY, REDOX Thory, and, of course THE THEORY OF EVOLUTION .


This is what Wikepedia says about a "Scientific Theory"

Quote:
A body of descriptions of knowledge can be called a theory if it f ulfills the following criteria:

It makes falsifiable predictions with consistent accuracy across a broad area of scientific inquiry (such as mechanics).
It is well-supported by many independent strands of evidence, rather than a single foundation.
It is consistent with preexisting experimental results and at least as accurate in its predictions as are any preexisting theories.

These qualities are certainly true of such established theories as special and general relativity, quantum mechanics, plate tectonics, the modern evolutionary synthesis, etc



It is a hame that in ebster, the eaning of theory has several definitions, and in street english it does mean mere conjecture. IN CIENCE, hoever, youd best be a bit higher up on your game of ord menings if you attempt to incorrectly use a definition that does NOT apply.


If you keep up stubbornly asserting that a scientific theory IS conjecture, then e will know that your not here to learn in debate, youre hear only to preach religious based myths

Are these guys saying that no scientific Theory has ever turned out to be False?

Talk about trying to convince morons !

@Leadfoot,
I'm finding it described as hypothesis.
