Cubist on scientific "proof"

If you want scientific evidence, forget about "proves", because science just doesn't *do* proof. Science does 'supported by the evidence', and 'well-supported by the evidence', and '*so* extremely well-supported by the evidence that you've gotta have a screw loose to reject it'. Scientists do not pretend to omniscience. It's always possible that there *might* be some overlooked factor that *could* make hamburger out of whatever scientific theory/conclusion.
