----------
Definitions of Fact, Theory, and Law in Scientific Work
Science uses specialized terms that have different meanings than everyday usage. These definitions correspond to the way scientists typically use these terms in the context of their work. Note, especially, that the meaning of “theory” in science is different than the meaning of “theory” in everyday conversation.
- Fact: In science, an observation that has been repeatedly confirmed and for all practical purposes is accepted as “true.” Truth in science, however, is never final and what is accepted as a fact today may be modified or even discarded tomorrow.
- Hypothesis: A tentative statement about the natural world leading to deductions that can be tested. If the deductions are verified, the hypothesis is provisionally corroborated. If the deductions are incorrect, the original hypothesis is proved false and must be abandoned or modified. Hypotheses can be used to build more complex inferences and explanations.
- Law: A descriptive generalization about how some aspect of the natural world behaves under stated circumstances.
- Theory: In science, a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world that can incorporate facts, laws, inferences, and tested hypotheses.

Still just a theory,albeit a widely accepted one.Much like the Big Bang THEORY.I'm not disagreeing with your theory,just pointing out that it's not proven FACT.and it's still not Jack Wagner's fault.

Do you hold similar doubts about the THEORY of gravity?

In science, a theory is the highest form of proof you can get.

It is of importance to me. After the new budget was put into place last year in PA and all the funding for programs that helped out the needy and those in poverty had to be cut almost to nothing,while the programs and funding going to those in bed with The Governor and republican interest all staid in tact and got more funding. Now to also use a web based tax payer funded website to spread republican propaganda and a agenda is unlawful and makes me sick. I would be just as sick if a Independent or democrat was doing the same. It is the principle that matters to me, not the bi-partisan bullshit.
If you look at the personal data section of the unemployment website, the email address is clearly listed as "optional."

You can go in and delete the email address any time you want.

Stop bitching and delete the address if you don't want the messages.

See, that's what rational, intelligent people who believe in science do - we blame the thing that actually causes the phenomenon instead of denying objective, verifiable reality.
So, what is your solution?

The earth has warmed and cooled in the past due to natural events. The scientific evidence shows that. That doesn't change that the scientific evidence today shows that it's warming due to the actions of humans.
If natural events caused warming and cooling in the past, why is today different?

Wow, you really don't have any idea what you're talking about AT ALL. You just jump right into a debate know knowing ANYTHING about the basic facts.

When the globe warmed in the past due to natural causes, those causes were identified. It didn't just happen without explanation. People understand why it happened and what was behind it. And those factors aren't at work today.

The globe is warming today because of increased levels of CO2 in the atmosphere. The source of that CO2 is human activity. There is no debate about this. It is proven fact.

When you know as little as you do about the basic facts, you really ought to do yourself a favor and not embarrass yourself by trying to debate something you know nothing about.

No,Fact is the highest form.The earth is round and rotates around the sun.A proven FACT.Manmade global warming is a theory.And it's still not Jack Wagner's fault.Of course,this is just a theoy.If enough people research it and form a consensus,it just might be Jack's fault.

Hey Dan the man, what's the matter? Can't back your statement up on the "Audience urges board to stop indifference" thread.

I'm waiting for the Bible verse about wasting a seed.
First you said no where in the Bible does it state homosexuality is wrong. I present you with Leviticus 20:13. You know, where God told Moses it's an abomination for a man to lie with another man. The only response you had was wasting a seed. Okay, lets see it. Can you back your statement up or this another Dan the man distortion?

Get ready for DTM spinning and lying. I have caught him so many times lying and the doofus still denies it. He will try to change the subject and act like thw innocent one. Here's the thing.....everyone knows how you operate. So you go right ahead and try to squirm out of this one...this ought to be another good laugh provided by the topix clown.

Did you folks know that DTM thinks he knows more then God?

I already tried to educate you on this. Read it again. This time pay special attention to the difference between a fact and a theory.

I don't know about the "God thing" but he holds "theory" higher than "fact".

It's sad that you choose ignorance over education. I guess that's what you have to do when education threatens your political ideology.

There is no doubt that man-made global warming is happening. The facts prove the theory. In science, a theory is the highest form of proof you can get.
