In his perpetually adorable way, everyone's favourite mullethead Twatsy quietly follows your humble scribe around the bloggysphere, leaving little Twatsy-sized droppings wherever he goes. Oh, look -- here's Twatsy, commenting on something I linked to recently and playing scientist:
Yes, you do find weaknesses in a theory. A weakness in a theory is any related question that it can't answer.
For example, evolution is a scientifically decisive answer to the question of how life developed. However, it doesn't decisively or scientifically answer the question of where life came from in the first place.
That's a weakness of the theory. It would be wrong to teach evolution in a classroom as if it answers this question. It doesn't.
Generally, any good scientific theory has some weaknesses. That's where criticisms tend to originate from.
I could comment, but I'll let my buddy Matt do the heavy lifting here:
Go back to your undergrad sociology texts, Twats. We grown-ups will handle the real science, thanks.
UM ... TWATSY? I'm thinking that someone who still hasn't figured out the difference between triangles and not-triangles really shouldn't be lecturing the rest of us on the methodology of science. You're just going to hurt yourself.
