or when they start calling "theories" what they usually are
you see there is this thing called the scientific method. Apparently people need to read wiki about it since they obviously don't read science books of the basic sort. Anyway, the same method applies to ..... well .... everything really
You see, first you Hypothesize .... this is really the same as having an idea
then, and this part is usually the important part, you EXPERIMENT ..... that is when you test your idea, over and over and over and over and over and over and over again until .....
you can theorize ..... now it's important to note here that THEORIZE is STEP 3 of the process .... a theory means you have concrete, repeatable with the same outcome, experiments and evidence, based on your hypothesis and the supporting experiments ..... NOW YOU HAVE A THEORY ..... GRATS !!!!!
and if that theory holds up under scrutiny it may one day become a scientific LAW ..... sometimes it stays a theory for a very long time, like evolution was a theory for 100+ years ..... then one day we discovered genetics, ran the gambit of the scientific method with that and then evolution became a scientific law ..... but it took 100+ years and a new science to get there .....
