Just a note for Harvey. My understanding of Popper is that he says a theory is not suitable if it cannot be falsified. For example, all theories of god are not suitable because there is no way to say that the theory is false or true. Experiments are the usual way.

You siad:

"Another error is Karl Popper's approach called falsificationism that says a theory is suitable until it is falsified"

Not quite the same thing
