Sorry, but >>> What is not REAL KNOWLEGDE IS NOT ACCEPTED by SCIENCE !!!!

1) Real knowlegde only has some sense if it IS about a truth. Knowlegde
shoud not be confused with quantity of (not necessarily validated)
informations, or divagations... or even conclusions based on a set of false
concepts... For me, it is not real knowlegde...
For me, the existence of such doubts nowadays is also one of BAD
consequences of RELIGIOUS FAITH over minds...

2) It is being forgotten that Science always tries to prove what concludes...

3) And about models, they must be VALIDATED in its dominium, to be
scientifically accepted...
