PHY-102 Topic 1 DQ 1 It is emphasized that scientists, through their investigations, do not prove anything
The reading for this week includes the following statement: “It is emphasized that scientists, through their investigations, do not prove anything” (GCU, 2014). A similar statement was made in an open letter to the editor of Science: “There is always some uncertainty associated with scientific conclusions; science never absolutely proves anything” (Glieck, et al., 2010). While technically true when considering the scientific method, it may be more beneficial to employ a graduated approach by classifying scientific information as “proven, evolving, [or] borderline science” (Moghissi, Amin, & McNulty, 2010).
Read the article, “Does Science Never Absolutely Prove Anything?” Then consider the theory of evolution. Do you consider the theory of evolution proven, evolving, or borderline science? Support your answer.
