I jumped into the conversation because you were trying to belittle someone by incorrectly claiming their use of a word was wrong. That because of it that he/she, somehow were inferior to you.<quoted text>
You know, you are very much like someone else on this forum! You are right, when proven wrong, you won't listen to any sort of reason, it's got to be your way. I posted the scientific meaning of a theory, you said ‘oh no’ that doesn’t apply to politics, then I descried in a valid scientific way that political theory and scientific polling are done, then you changed to a third version, also incorrect; proven with the very link YOU provided? I don’t get it, what in the hell is wrong with you? At first you appear to possess some rationality, the more you go on the more that hypothesis is disproven. I was responding to a person attacking me with complete ignorance in the first place, who invited you into the conversation? Now be sure I am done with this bullshit, next you will likely try a Russian interpretation of theory anyway! You were bested, deal with it!
That kind of arrogance only comes from posers. People pretending to have a high degree of intelligence and education, when in reality they likely will be taking your order at the local drive through.
As shown by all the definitions I posted, a theory, aside from its exact technical meanings, can and does mean opinion, speculation, conjecture, ect. ALL the things you told the person you blasted, it didn't mean.
In other words the poster used the word correctly.
I had to come from many different directions to get that simple notion though to you. That prove more difficult than I imagined.
Apparently dictionaries are too complex for you.
Now if it makes you feel better, you win ;-)
