  4. 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.
