It is very justifyable to ponder a theory. We ususaly take mathematics to be perfectly accurate in many cases. Mathematics is the key to theory, it seems as though you can prove a theory on mathematics alone but to get the public`s approval (or the scientific community) you must have concrete proof. I think all the answers to the universe can be found within ourselves (ie. thought experiments and mathematical confirmation). Theory is the working desk of science. That`s how we interpret reallity, work out all the kinks, and make it coincide with what we observe. I can see that you, Andy Moore, are a "I have to see it to believe it" type of person and that is perfectly fine. But I always believed in "it`s there whether I have seen it or not" and it`s up to me as a "scientist" to find out what it is and where I can find it before I go looking for it.

Thanks for reading,
(I`m not a scientist)
