Yes, truth in science would refer to accuracy or integrity of data and ideas, but not finality.

I have a theory that I am discussing these
issues with a bunch of local yokels or that
we have been partitioned on a giant website
with many discussion groups of the same name
to accomodate the enormous public popularity
of the topic.

But I have very little evidence other than
I can't believe "this is all the smarter" our
discussions can be. Shucks. I also believe nobody is qualified to tell me except the webmaster.
I do feel very grateful to talk with you yokels.

BUT that theory is not a theory in the sense of a
Theory of Evolution.
LAW and THEORY in science are technical terms
whose definition is in a science dictionary.

The Theory of Relativity and
the Theory of Evolution
use the term "theory" in the sense that each is a work in progress. Information Theory too marches on.
