mathman: Theories which cannot be tested by measurement are meaningless.

Wayne: I fully agree, but experimental results can (and have been) misunderstood. Whenever you have two or more VIABLE explanations for a thing that is not fully understood, you are compelled to examine theories that might explain it or live in ignorence. As your insight into the theories improves you develope a bias toward one theory or another. I happen to think in terms of absolute truth. Creation or evolution, there is only one that will eventually prove to be true. Singularities exist or they don't. I have a bias in my current thinking, but I will not close my mind to any viable answer to any serious question.
