I love Pulp Fiction, but I prefer Resevoir Dogs.

You're right though.

When you say "theories", however, what you don't realise is how accurate they are.

For example, QED is a theory which is accurate 1 part in 10 billion.

13 Misconceptions About Global Warming I would agree with you, if you said "as long as there are theories, we should test them." Questioning a theory just based on it being a theory, especially if there is overwhelming amounts of evidence, is kind of silly.
People need to stop misconstruing the definition of a theory, like that 'Game Theory' guy on YouTube who says "but afterall, it's just a theory.... a GAME THEORY." That's speculation, not a theory. Speculation on the other hand should be questioned regularly, until evidence finds that it can be a theory.

Theories are as true as you believe them to be. You can't just call them facts, or never test them. Theories are the base of all research, and most theories are build on other theories. But for example Lamarck's idea of evolution was also a theory, if Darwin hadn't come up with the modern evolution theory we might have still been believe lamarck's idea. And that's the reason testing theories is important. Even to this day lamarcks idea considered a theory even though we are sure it's not right.

Tldr: Theories can be wrong and still theories so you can't just assume they are facts.

I don't know where I stated that you shouldn't test theories or where I said you should assume they are facts. I do see where I said you should test theories rather than just question them based on them being a theory and therefore not an absolute truth. Also, theories are the conclusion of research, and some theories are used as evidence for other ones, yes, but they are always the conclusion. That gives them more merit than speculation.

#59 - nustix (11/02/2014) [-]
Ok I guess I misunderstood you, it's more than speculation, but it never hurts to test theories. One of the requirements of a theory is actually to withstand excessive testing.
User avatar
#61 - thepandaking (11/02/2014) [-]
Yeah that's my point, is that they've already gone through excessive testing, not that that means you don't need to test them, but they definitely aren't given justice when people say "well, ya know that's just a theory." That phrase has constantly hurt people's perception of how trustworthy theories are.

"Even as a theory it seems pretty unsteady"?

Nigga are you fucking joking right now?

More in scope and scale then the "fact" it's happening.
The planet naturally fluctuates, i.e. Ice Age, but humans are no doubt accelerating it.
#43 - Sabor (11/02/2014) [-]
Yeah it naturally fluctuates, that's pretty much common knowledge. But the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere right now (which is essentially the main component that will cause increasing temperatures) is fucking way higher than any other previous natural fluctuation.

What is your point? The graph shows that we have pumped far more CO2 into the atmosphere than could be considered natural. 4.5 billion years ago the planet was hundreds of degrees hotter than it is now and the air was literally unbreathable because it was mostly CO2 and methane... But it's not going to turn back into that by any natural process.

You are right, the fact is this change in climate happens every 10,000 years, even wit the absence of supervolcanic eruption right now, that have affected the climate in the past.

The reason is all natural. Everyone knows that every 10,000 the Earth NATURALLY get's covered by a layer of millions of SUV's that affect the climate. It's all natural.

And I am sure that all mathematicians are debating the "theory" that 15 is greater than 5.

There are plenty of "facts", though, like it's a fact I typed this message out and am going to reply to your comment with this message.

It's a fact I had to move my fingers for this. That's not a theory.

I understand you mostly meant scientific things, but there are some things that are definitely considered 'facts' because there is no way to disprove them. Ways around them, sure, but that doesn't change things. Like there's a way around using only one type of energy for something, like coal and what not, but it doesn't get rid of the fact we can use them for energy.

When you say most scientists do you mean most scientists whose field connects to the study of climate change today, and do you mean the majority of these scientists or the majority of scientific institutions or advocacy groups?

I'm skeptical about just accepting an organizations viewpoint on something since I learned that the American Medical Association only represents less than 17% of the M.D.'s in the US and that polls of it's members show that the majority of the don't believe that AMA represents their views.

Yet people will claim that all physicians supports something if the AMA supports something.

As I got it it's not just that they howl with you but somehow imitates your specific howl somehow since many packs got their own special howl.
