Was a nineteenth century monk whose hypotheses about inheritance in pea plants have become scientific laws?
A hypothesis is a proposed scientific explanation for a set of observations. Scientists generate hypotheses using prior knowledge; logical inference; and informed, creative imagination. Scientific hypotheses must be proposed in a way that enables them to be tested. Some hypotheses are tested by performing controlled experiments. Other hypotheses are tested by gathering more data.
Is it true that the scientific attitude of skepticism helps scientists come up with good experiments to test hypotheses?
The act of sitting and watching TV is not scientific. Science is about making observations, formulating hypotheses, gathering data, and testing whether these hypotheses are supported. You can be scientific about what you watch on TV, in the sense that you can judge whether the information given was collected in a scientific manner, and you can be a critical judge of the information given (instead of accepting everything just because it's on TV), which are…
The scientific method is important in scientific investigation because it helps to test predictions (hypotheses). The scientific method has been very effective in advancing scientific knowledge. Scientists have learned a tremendous amount about our universe, by making use of it. Therefore, the scientific method has proved its value.
A hypothesis (from Greek ὑπόθεσις; plural hypotheses) is a proposed explanation for an observable phenomenon. The term derives from the Greek, ὑποτιθέναι - hypotithenai meaning "to put under" or "to suppose." For a hypothesis to be put forward as a scientific hypothesis, the scientific method requires that one can test it. Scientists generally base scientific hypotheses on previous observations that cannot satisfactorily be explained with the available scientific theories. I did not know the exact…
