Re: Science? What happened to "hypothesis" vs "theory"?

While I have a degree in physics, I not a physicist. But I find the current state of physics disturbing. For some it seems to have become a religion, where actual evidence is not necessary so long as you have an interesting hypothesis. And if it "proves" Einstein was wrong all the better.

While I'm sure Einstein didn't get it all right, so far his theories have proven remarkably resilient.
