No excuse to misuse a word and sound like a dumbass :lol:

 

Hmm several dictionaries say theory and hypothesis are synonyms (same or near the same meaning). Sounds like you're nitpicking to appear clever.

Chillax and crunk are in the dictionary too if you're coming with that.  They're not anything close to the same thing.  I'm not trying to appear like anything, it's just amusing to me when it's coming from people that have been dripping with arrogance this whole time.

Huh, what do those have to do with theory and hypothesis?  Are you trying to say theory and hypothesis do not have the same basic meaning?

 

Ok so you weren't nit picking to look clever, but to take a shot at the arrogant Pats homers. It was still nit picking IMHO. This ain't the mensa board, its football fans.

We aren’t attempting to validate scientific concepts, moran.  My use of the word is perfectly acceptable in the context of its use.  Use a dictionary before you try and criticize word usage, unless you are trying to look like a dummy.

Yes...cause they aren't. 

 

In short, theory = proven without a reasonable doubt.  Hypothesis = subject to debate, criticism, etc.  Steve... you might be the ,ost nitpicky guy on the board.  I thought you'd understand where i'm coming from :lol:

Hey moran, A. it's not, B. if you want to continue sounding like a moran, continue using it liberally in the way you do, and C.  I'll still call you out every time cause i'm an educator. :coffee: 


Also, refer back to the Kellerman video previously posted.

You are just flat out wrong.

From Merriam-Webster:

"Definition of theory

plural theories
1 : a plausible or scientifically acceptable general principle or body of principles offered to explain phenomena the wave theory of light
2 a : a belief, policy, or procedure proposed or followed as the basis of action her method is based on the theory that all children want to learn
b : an ideal or hypothetical set of facts, principles, or circumstances —often used in the phrase in theory in theory, we have always advocated freedom for all
3 a : a hypothesis assumed for the sake of argument or investigation
b : an unproved assumption : conjecture
c : a body of theorems presenting a concise systematic view of a subject theory of equations
4 : the general or abstract principles of a body of fact, a science, or an art music theory
5 : abstract thought : speculation
6 : the analysis of a set of facts in their relation to one another"

:rofl: educator :rofl:

thats what the media, especially locally, does....throw out every possibility and play every angle......its kind of gross

 

dan shaugnessy was on tennesse radio today and he was basically saying "i dont think the pats are that good...ive been saying it for awhile...i keep waiting for someone to step up but they keep throwing parades by my house".........this guy is worse than some of the guys here....they are killing him on EEI.......talking about how he hated the krafts family for years cause they didnt invite him to a breakfast lol

 

maybe brady is motivated for his "brand"...or maybe hes just super motivated to defy the odds because thats what hes known for and wants to cement a legacy that cant be touched......sometimes its just the simplest answer....brady has always been motivated before there was the hundreds of millions and the brand and all of it

I like breakfast!!!!  :usa:

I bet you use the word irregardless because it's in the dictionary now :lol: 

 

I know you two have been having a hard time getting this through your thick skulls (Caveman is fitting) when i've tried to simplify it, so here's further reinforcement (from your own source) since you're still having a hard time.

 

https://www.merriam-webster.com/words-at-play/difference-between-hypothesis-and-theory-usage

 

"A hypothesis is usually tentative, an assumption or suggestion made strictly for the objective of being tested.

A theory, in contrast, is a principle that has been formed as an attempt to explain things that have already been substantiated by data. 

 

Boom.  Class is over.

A theory, in contrast, is a principle that has been formed as an attempt to explain things that have already been substantiated by data. It is used in the names of a number of principles accepted in the scientific community, such as the Big Bang Theory. Because of the rigors of experimentation and control, its likelihood as truth is much higher than that of a hypothesis."

 

Boom.  Class is over.

 

 

You are a complete idiot.  Not all things one might theorize about are related to science.  Many words have multiple definitions. Your definition relates only to the use of the word with respect to scientific theory.

 

But please, keep arguing with the top dictionaries in the world.  It’s entertaining. :rofl:

Btw, from the article you linked:

 

In non-scientific use, however, hypothesisand theory are often used interchangeably to mean simply an idea, speculation, or hunch (though theory is more common in this regard)

you’re even proving yourself wrong.  Did you read the whole article or just enough to get a blurb you liked? :rofl:

When you sift through as much data as we do for fantasy football, how can it not be considered a science on a certain level?  Probably another concept beyond your grasp.  By your own logic, another definition of science is a systemically organized body of knowledge on a particular subject.  We're obviously never going to agree as displayed by your stubborness throughout this thread on anything you don't agree with, so i'm not going to waste anymore of my time on someone this dense.

 

Plenty of users have been around as long as you, with far less posts, and far more likes.  Amusing, and proof you're shyte.

If your read further - 

 

"Since this casual use does away with the distinctions upheld by the scientific community, hypothesis and theory are prone to being wrongly interpreted even when they are encountered in scientific contexts"

 

AKA morans like you are dumbing this down.  Peace.
