    I promised SR and I am not breaking my word. Nice try.

    We can continue this by PM, if I had any assurance you would actually listen. My last word on the topic as I dont want SR dragged into this.

    I'm done in this thread.

    I am well aware of the definition of what a theory is. As a matter of fact, FlaGator, my dictionary has SIX separate and distinct definitions for the word.

    Allow me to elucidate

    • A set of statements or principles devised to explain a group of facts or phenomena, especially one that has been repeatedly tested or is widely accepted and can be used to make predictions about natural phenomena.
    • The branch of a science or art consisting of its explanatory statements, accepted principles, and methods of analysis, as opposed to practice: a fine musician who had never studied theory.
    • A set of theorems that constitute a systematic view of a branch of mathematics.
    • Abstract reasoning; speculation: a decision based on experience rather than theory.
    • A belief or principle that guides action or assists comprehension or judgment: staked out the house on the theory that criminals usually return to the scene of the crime.
    • An assumption based on limited information or knowledge; a conjecture.

    That definition, the last one, contradicts wilbur directly, in that germs, bacteria, virii, spirochetes, filoviruses (you know what these are?The ones that cause Ebola?) are not "conjecture" they are SCIENTIFIC AND MEDICAL FACT.
    Sonna, we are all obviously well aware how the term theory is often used in the common parlance, to refer to some highly speculative conjecture or contrived idea. Seriously, we get it.

    But that one definition (you selectively plucked out of six or seven) has no bearing what-so-ever on the meaning of theory, when referring to a scientific theory - at all. Homonyms.... look them up. And pay special attention to the first definition on your list:

    [*] A set of statements or principles devised to explain a group of facts or phenomena, especially one that has been repeatedly tested or is widely accepted and can be used to make predictions about natural phenomena.

    That's funny, I don't care who you are.
