What is a theory?
A theory is an explanation of the causality of people/things/events
by a logical argument which includes verifiable/falsifiable premises which
lead to a conclusion which is valid if relevant to the premises and which
is true if the premises are verified by proof.
Causality is causes causing effects--people/things/events comprised
of matter/energy as causes causing people/things/events also comprised of
matter/energy as effects.
Matter/energy has been proven by the conservation of matter and the conservation
of energy (from thermodynamics and chemistry) and by experimental confirmation
of E = mc2 and m = E/c2 of Einstein's theory of relativity to be indestructible
and therefore infinite in duration.
Causality, being people/things/events comprised of matter/energy as causes
causing people/things/events comprised of matter/energy as effects, is infinite
in duration and thus had no beginning and will have no ending. Thus, there
is no chain of causality leading back to a first cause.
The source of causality is therefore matter/energy. Causality, being
matter/energy, is therefore a never-begun and never-ending process.
An explanation is a description of the causality of a person/thing/event.
An explanation should predict people/things/events who/which are
causes to cause people/things/events who/which are effects, the results of
Proof consists of (A) physical evidence (people/things/events
comprised of matter/energy); (B) eyewitness reports containing no
contradictions or factual errors, of physical evidence, and presented by
credible eyewitnesses, individuals who are not known to lie or deceive, who
are not known to have a motivation for lying/deceiving, and whose claims
are corroborated by credible corroborators; (C) logical arguments
consisting of verifiable/falsifiable/verifed premises leading to conclusions
which are valid if relevant to the premises and true if the premises are
A theorist's conclusions are challenged by challenging his premises.
