Name One Theory That Is Completely Right

Aurino,

The history of science is finding an explanation that explains previous observations and then work as hard as you can to find exceptions. No theory that I know is completely without exceptions (including definitions - which is what an equation is by the way). Somewhere along the line a definition (equation) will fail. The approximation breaks down.

For example, particle physicists are doing everything possible to prove the standard model wrong. They are excited about the possibility of it being wrong. Eventually, it in all likelyhood will be shown to be wrong. And, then, someone will come along with a new hypothesis that explains the discrepancies and the whole cycle repeats. As far as we know, truth may only be able to be roughly approximated.

Warm regards, Harv
