Claim CA250:

Scientific theories are always changing. You cannot trust what scientists say, since it may be different tomorrow.


Egilson, G. H. 2003. For creation. Post on, 23 Oct., Message-ID: ,
Matthews, Michael. 2003. A century of fraud.


  1. Science investigates difficult questions about unknown fields, and scientists are human, so it is inevitable that scientific findings will not be perfect. However, science works by investigating more and more, which means results get checked and rechecked with further findings. The reason some findings change is because they get corrected. This process of correction helps make science one of the most successful areas of human endeavor. The people who cannot be trusted are those who are always right.

  2. As more evidence accumulates, scientific findings become more and more certain. Theories that have withstood several decades of study may undergo more refinement of details, but it is almost inconceivable that they would be overturned completely.
