The Anointed one says"
WRONGEDY WRONG WRONG
Until a theory has been proven, beyond a shadow of a doubt, it remains no more than a theory.
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"
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
