Hello, I am looking for someone to write an article on What Makes a Theory. It needs to be at least 1250 words. We can be sure about the validity of a theory on failure to disapprove of the hypothesis and that no other hypothesis can produce similar results. A theory does not enjoy immunity since it is possible to discard it if technological advancements allow for improved methods of experimentation that reveal the reality about the condition in the test. The question remains whether over the years. evolution continues to satisfy the condition described.
There are problems that inhibit anybody from validating evolution as a real scientific theory. To begin, there is an absence of direct and observable experimentation that one can perform regarding the theory. While scientists can measure and examine bones, decode DNA, study mutations, and discover similarities in the morphology of living organisms, it is impossible to test evolutionary events that occurred in the past. The idea that living organisms evolved over many years in the past is, therefore, a belief since it is impossible to conduct any test to prove or disapprove of it. Some scientists who support the evolution theory argue that ‘natural selection’ is an example of an ongoing evolution in the current times that over many years in the past caused the various transformations (Dobzhansky 125). However, the truth is that natural selection is only capable of acting on the genetic potential, which already subsists. Therefore, it means that what one can visualize from the natural selection cannot amount to a universal descent.
To continue, all the various tests conducted to verify the theory do not distinctively and necessarily, align to the view. Each of them contains an alternate as well as an explanation that is equally, viable. A valid theory requires that all the experiments conducted to confirm the theory must correspond to a single particular hypothesis (Carey et al. 514). Failure to meet this condition then means that the experiment is incapable of establishing legitimacy. The evolutionary idea does not have that legitimacy.
Facts invalidating the theory
The idea that living organisms evolved extracts most of its evidence from the process of natural selection.
