Quotes about colloquial


1. I am using the word theory as a scientist means it: a set of ideas so well established by observations and physical models that it is essentially indistinguishable from fact. That is different from the colloquial use that means "guess."To a scientist, you can bet your life on a theory. Remember, gravity is "just a theory"too.
