Theories are based on "facts", but theories themselves are not facts. How can this be? Answer this: 1. How can a theory change while the "facts" remain the same? 2. What is a "Fact"? 3. Can you give an example of a scientific "fact"?

    A theory can be changed through testing it. A fact is a thing that is indisputably the case. An example of a scientific fact is that the world is round.

    A scientific theory is a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world that is acquired through the scientific method and repeatedly tested and confirmed through observation and experimentation.

    A scientific theory is a explanation of parts of the world and is tested over and over to be confirmed.
