Aura, stop. Listen. Seriously.
Your argument is that science knows something RIGHT NOW and that that is PROOF FOREVER that that thing is the way it is.
You asked for an example using evolution as the subject.
Since we're talking about FUTURE information which MIGHT change our understanding, I am forced to _SPECULATE_ about what that information MIGHT be.
Yes, it's a "what if". That's EXACT WHAT YOU ASKED FOR!
You don't get to complain that I present you with a "what if" scenario in a discussion about FUTURE information potentially changing our understanding of something.
That's the ENTIRE discussion.
Your claim is wrong. Period.
Future information (whatever it may be) can and will change our scientific understanding of things which today are believed to be well understood.
Is it going to happen to EVERYTHING we understand? No.
Can we predict which things will or won't change? Not really.
All we, as scientists, can do is say thing:
"Our understanding is incomplete. What we know now works and seems to be correct. We could be proven wrong, and if so, we'll have to change our understanding to better include the new information."
When you claim something is "proven", you are saying "This is how it is, now and FOREVER. No new information, no matter how good, no matter how Earth shattering. No matter how revolutionary. NO new information will ever change our current understanding."
That's not science. That's religion.
No shit Sherlock I never said it was absolute , but with a few things they will never be overturned. Like Newtons laws of motion.
They can be revised but not overturned. They are 99.5% confidence
and that's proof beyond reasonable doubt.
g = 9.80665 m/s2 is never going to change.
1 ly is never going to change.
Its speed 186,282 miles per second is never going to change.
This could be revised if we are able to measure it farther down in decimal places but they are proven beyond reasonable doubt.
