Just A Theory

PEN1450Having faith that the scientific method exposes objective truths is very different than accepting the hypotheses of every scientist as true.

The existence of gravity is a fact regardless of whether or not Newton’s theory was corrected by Einstein. Evolution is proven even though our understanding of it’s particulars, will no doubt expand.

  1. “Having faith that the scientific method exposes objective truths…”

    I personally try to avoid using the word “faith” in this context, because the theists do so much equivocating around that word. I prefer to use “confidence”, and then I can talk about what my “confidence level” in a proposition is. And my confidence is proportional to the amount and strength of the evidence presented.
