: many of the people who post messages in this forum use the word "theory" so freely that it appears that they have no idea what it means. A theory is an idea that has been tested many times by many different groups or information and has not been proven false. Many of these ideas seem to have been thought of while typing these messages. They are far from true theories, they are just spontaneous ideas. You need to get your descriptions straight, or you can not be taken seriously.

The definition of THEORY is assumption ,formulation, guess, hypothesis, presumption, supposition, surmise

I think what you have said is ACCEPTED THEORY the most believable theory. Relaying on current teaching to dismiss or accept the HYPOTHESIS ( Theory ) put forward This is a discussion group for people to express ideas not to have precise analytical foundations before they express there assumptions
