so you are certainly uncertain about evolution and relativity?
that doesn't sound very scientific to me.
I am VERY certain about Evolution. It's a fact. I know for a fact that the Biblical Creation stories are incorrect. Those are facts.
Now we get to Theory. Right now the best explanation we have for the factual evidence that's there are the Theory of Evolution and the Theory of Relativity (as modified in some cases under GR). But those are still held tentatively. Look at the first definition you posted.
Main Entry: tentative
Etymology: Medieval Latin tentativus, from Latin tentatus, past participle of tentare, temptare to feel, try
1 : not fully worked out or developed
Not fully worked out or developed. We are constantly modifying scientific theory as more is learned. There is much more yet to be learned about both the TOE and the relationship of forces that govern this universe.
well I agree that TOE is tentative. it is very uncertain, and a faith call and since you agree that FAITH has no place in SCIENCE, how can you take that leap (of faith) for TOE?
because I cannot.
No faith is required. Instead, the TOE is the best explanation available, as you said, based on the evidence. If, in the future something is discovered that falsifies the TOE then either the theory will change or a new theory will replace it. I do know for a fact that it will NOT be the creation tales from Genesis. They have already been falsified.
