Actually I am not the one sticking my finger in my ear's though sometime's in private it may stray to an itchy nostril or two.
Actually I do not believe the earth is otherwise than a semi spheroid orbiting a mid cycle G2 yellow dwarf somewhere in the outer half of the spiral
arm of the milky way galaxy.
Rather my point was that point of view is relative to a person's perspective as indeed is there interpretation of the universe itself so I was taking
the middle ground.
Scientific proof also is though legal terminology is not actually science and I have had that debate elsewhere as it revolves around the nature of
the word proof, in science proof is not as it is in mathematics or law but rather the empirical principle or repeatable result and observation
providing SUPPORTING data to build a feasible model or criteria for a theoretical explanation to be posited.
Proof therefore is not the correct SCIENTIFIC statement, SUPPORTING EVIDENCE is.
And though I have obviously encountered many on this site that think they know better the fact remain's that it is a scientific TENET (Latin for held
or law) that no theory is ever PROVABLE and can only ever be supported but any theory can be disproved, this became a nightmare for some once they got
into the realm of quantum mechanic's and theory as how can you ever determine the exact location of a particle, is a photon a wave or a particle and
can that particle if it is a particle move between parallel reality's etc so they coined the term uncertainty and even better created the new idea
Chaos Theory to deal with out of range result's that would otherwise undermine and effectively disprove several CHERISHED AND ESTABLISHED theoretical
model's upon which many other's had been based with the result that the entire realm of high level theoretical physic's would have been earth quaked
back to having to start again.
