Valid and Confirmable are synonyms (even if in a loose sense)
The Big Bang Theory is indeed more confirmable than The Easter Bunny
All of these things that I said people mocked me for and said I was an idiot.
They also said I was stupid for claiming that:

B) The Big Bang Theory can be disproven in the future
They claimed that statements A and B contradict eachother
If I remember correctly, the way out universe has dispensed is considered proof of the big bang.
