Does anyone know the fucking difference between these two things? It seems that many of us think these words are interchangeable. Well I'm here to tell you that they aren't! A hypothesis is basically an educated guess. Something that needs to be studied and tested and retested and peer-reviewed then fucking retested again. During all those steps you will probably need to adjust your hypothesis to adapt it to your data. And keep changing things until you get it right. Then and only then does your hypothesis graduate into becoming a theory.
So the next time you hear "blank
is just a theory." You can tell that person to get their fucking definitions straight before they open their big fat pie holes. Maybe read something about the topic first. It's not hard. You can read right?
Also to all you "old" media fuck faces. Stop dumbing down all this shit just so Joe Dumbshit thinks he understands science. he doesn't, not to say that he can't but reading your shit he isn't learning anything but sure thinks he is which puts us at a negative doesn't it? FUCK YOU! We should be challenged by what we read. Challenged to learn more; to understand more fully. You people are not providing that. FUCK YOU!
