But then what determines how reliable a model is? How trustworthy a theory is?

There is no "reliability" for science. It is accepted as TRUE until someone shows it to be FALSE. This is why falsifiability is an absolute requirement for science.

There also is no "supportability," "sustainability," "maintainability," "dependability," etc... none of the "ilities" apply to science models and Consumer Reports will not be rating any models in the near future.


I don't think i can [define it]. I just kind of get a feel for the phrase. - keepit

Clouds don't trap heat. Clouds block cold. - Spongy Iris

If Venus were a black body it would have a much much lower temperature than what we found there.- tmiddles

You are completely misunderstanding their use of the word "accumulation"! - Climate Scientist.

The Stefan-Boltzman equation doesn't come up with the correct temperature if greenhouse gases are not considered - Hank

:*sigh* Not the "raw data" crap. - Leafsdude

IB STILL hasn't explained what Planck's Law means. Just more hand waving that it applies to everything and more asserting that the greenhouse effect 'violates' it.- Ceist

Ah, that makes sense. What, say, the properties of black holes? They can't be experimentally figured out yet.
