The scientific method is a major force in science, and theories about physical phenomena have been developed to ensure that
    • They agree with what we find in experiments and observations.
    • They agree with the wisdom of the ancients.
    • Results from experiments can be adjusted to agree with carefully-constructed theoretical ideals.
    • They are so good and our faith in them is so strong that we never need to test them against observations.
