Aaron,

***Fact : An event, action, or bit of knowledge that can not be disputed by another current event, action, or bit of knowledge. If it is disputed by a current event, action, or bit of knowledge then it is no longer a fact.***

So, what do you think of this link: http://lcweb.loc.gov/rr/scitech/SciRefGuides/flatearth.html ?

***Bit of knowledge: A piece of knowledge that has been determined to be true even if there still remains unknown properities to that truth.***

Just unknown properties? What about the existence of mild discrepancies? I get the impression that you think mild discrepancies should be non-existent in order to consider a theory to be true. If that's the case, then we should reject the notion that the sun operates on fusion. Mild discrepancies in our models of the sun still exist.

Warm regards, Harv
