Laws and theories.
These definitions obviously suggest a hierarchy of certaint.

That's an erronous idea - since you like websters, like use it again (I notice how you seem to quote websters for "commmon" meanings of those words but then your own versions for the scientific varitations - odd that).

A well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world; an organized system of accepted knowledge that applies in a variety of circumstances to explain a specific set of phenomena; "theories can incorporate facts and laws and tested hypotheses"; "true in fact and theory".
