Imo, it's the lack of understanding of a particular science.

As a geologist, I know firsthand that, with the many facets of that field, much of it is exact however, there is some that is not and interpolation and extrapolation is necessary to come to relative conclusions. Maybe folks feel if it isn't completely exact and true than it should be questioned and not believed entirely. I dunno.

Science oh brother where art thou?

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G%C3%B6bekli_Tepe

This turned Science on it’s head for me.

Some geologist and anthropologist have suggested that it may be older.

"Fool me once, shame on me; fool me twice... etc."  I wonder [or am skeptical] more about how/why those in positions of responsibility and trust play it a bit fast and loose, more so than the science per se.    Qu'est cera, qu'est cera ... or something along those lines.

Because one is a measurement and the other is a prediction? OR, because one is an objective fact and the other is a political agenda?

I like the phrase an infectious diseases specialist used just now [CBC radio] in discussing a vaccine for avian flu in humans: "It's not entirely clear.... ."   yes

Science has never yet confirmed that 2-finger planting on the banjo head is necessary.

Because if the eclipse is off like it was this year and not a show stopper like this year who was harmed. Folks still have the bragging rights to where they were when it happened. Look up the path of totality and you may find the exact path was not exactly like they predicted no one was harmed.
But get the side effects of a miracle drug wrong then sit back and watch.

One of the jam regulars around here [sings and plays guitar] is missing the ring finger and pinkie of his right/picking hand. One day I asked him where he stood on issue of the 1 or 2 finger plant.  He was totally unaware that banjo pickers faced such weighty issues.  It lost much of it's oomph (?) when I had to explain it.  sad

I knew a mandolin player that used to come to Union Grove and all of his fingers on his left hand had been cut off ...... juts nubs. He was really a pretty good mandolin player. I think his name was Ralph Pennington.

It must not have been Ralph as all the pjotos I see of him he has all of his digets. Anyone remember a fingerless mandolin player at Union Grove festival?

...can't recall a fingerless mando player but there's this banjo player named __?__ from the BG band named 'Mountain Heart' who has no left fingers - only left thumb. I. believe right hand not impaired.

He plays well despite his challenge, but, not to be unkind certainly, his forced style of sound unfortunately does not make full banjo depth or range. Pretty much all that I heard, at a concert I believe, was one song sounding the same as the next.

Apologies to those who may be offended by this post. Just sayin what my ears heard at the time.

EDIT: sorry OP....didn't intend to bushwhack your topic.

In the speech of Real People, "THEORY" can mean "Best guess" or maybe just "guess".
But in science, it means "This is the best explanation we can come up with, based on what fits the known facts".

There is germ theory, the theory of gravity, the theory of evolution.

Anybody ever say "GRAVITY is just a THEORY!" and step off of the edge of a cliff?

Science will change, as new information is uncovered.
And if you can prove a theory is wrong, you get a NOBEL PRIZE!

I'm old enough to remember when polio was all too common. The kid across the street caught it. And I remember how happy people were, when Jonas Salk came up with a vaccine.

If the stuff in vaccines REALLY causes autism, why isn't EVERY person who ever got vaccinated, on the same day, at the same place, with the same stuff as someone who later became autistic, also autistic?

I would theroise..
That not all people are built the same Mike...

For some reason..
Plastic tape bandiges..burned n emulsified me skin...
The Dr.s were horrorfied..after trying to bandage me up around the LVAD drive line site in me abdomin..only to cause more dammage..

Dosen't do that to ..most other people..

Paper tape worked much better but not perfect..

As an example...

... the cause or a factor?

Our neighbour's son appeared to be a pretty normal kid.  When he was a primary school student his school burned [no injuries or deaths].  Starting that night he experienced serious and unrelenting nightmares, and some "changes" in daytime behaviour ... in due course the diagnosis was epilepsy.  Was the fire a cause, a factor, or an irrelevant coincidence?  ... or??

And to get down to real science, how come one guy can down m-a-n-y beers in the course of an evening and appear almost unaffected while somebody across the table [more or less same place and same stuff] is blotto after 1/3 the amount?   And stuff like aspirin and tylenol can apparently reduce/control pain in some while significantly higher doses in another person produce no discernible effect?  And somebody can eat pretty much any of the foods that supposedly trigger gout without getting a flare up, and then have one appear apparently out of the blue?  Etc., etc., etc.

When Salk developed the singular, unique polio vaccine, profit was not the motive. Today's vaccine schedule for schoolchildren is over 50 shots now, all developed and made mandatory by pharm companies very much pursuing profits. And they are protected by federal law from being sued. Much of what sounds like nonsense about vaccines and autism is just that; nonsense put out by the pharm companies to discredit anyone who sounds any alarms.

Easy one,

Agenda and quality of the science degrees used on each topic. Astrophysics vs social science. Some just dont consider trend analysis hard science. Most environmental science majors have zero physics and little math degree requirements for example. The physics classes they do take are for them. For example, many colleges have algebra for teachers, physics for teachers etc. These are watered down versions of the subject.

Same goes for lawyers. Somecstick with facts, data and evidence, some talk on TV. We only see the unskilled shouters for the most part.

You are confusing environmental studies degrees with environmental science degrees.
