Alex,

I agree the term 'fact' is applicable here. But my goal was to separate the distinction of "absolute truth" from "scientific theory." "Fact," as commonly understood, does not exactly mean the same thing "fact" does in scientific usage. The common interpretation of the noun "fact" corresponds to the verb "prove" ('common' and scientific) which, as you know, is a no-no.
