Science does not come from books
Science does not come from books. Science is something you do, the results of which go into books. Science is a process of observation, hypothesis and experiments, leading to theory.
An hypothesis is a tentative, testable explanation of what is going on. If it cannot be tested, it is not a good hypothesis. A theory is an hypothesis that has been tested and not found wanting, yet. We continue to design new experiments, and we continue to repeat old experiments.
