Being put to test over and over is what makes it "objective". There are hypothesis that make it to the "theory" level and are actually biased, but they're few and eventually they get spotted.

Bias varies among different sciences, is easier to be biased in medicine but not so much in physics.

So yeah, the scientist's background influences her/his work, but that doesn't mean every theory is biased, so don't go there. It only means that we have to be cautious, that's why we have peer reviews and revision of theories all the time.

RE: From where are scientific hypothesis made?
A scientific hypothesis is a relative guess scrutinized by particular, currently known laws of physics. A maths equation is often the standard universal language to express it, but not always.

If you are referring to the behavior of gasses or solids for instance, that is one thing; if you are referring to the social behavior of human beings, that is another thing.

You asked, "where are scientific hypothesis made" but, you seem to be asking more about a social or behavioral actions of prediction.

But then... it's anyone's guess what you're on about. Dodgy

I think in the end, I just feel like I'm a secular person who has a skeptical eye toward any extraordinary claim, carefully examining any extraordinary evidence before jumping to conclusions. ~ Eric ~ My friend ... who figured it out.

If this is any indication of his general level of education, it's no wonder, what garbage we see posted here under his name.

Idiot Squared. We all know you're special. Very special.
But singular subjects go with singular verbs, in the English language.
Tomorrow, we'll cover plural subjects, and plural verbs.
Stay special.

Whoa!!! What the fuck?! Did you really just say that?!Hobo


Pack it in scientist...this guy says equations can't predict things so lets just give up, because some random guy said something.


Hey wait a minute, I have a prediction using equations.
My prediction or hypothesis is if I have one apple, and add another apple to that first one, the end result will be two apples. If I use the number one to represent how many apples when there is only one, and the number 2 to represent the number of apples I have when there are two apples, then I might write that equation thusly: 1+1=r. The first “1” representing the first one apple, and the second “1” representing the second one apple. “r” is the unknown variable.

I'm betting, based on my prediction, that the variable “r” will equal 2, or two apples. So I should be able to write that equation like this: 1+1=2. That's my hypothesis anyway. I wonder if there is any way I can test this hypothesis out in the real world or in space to see if it's true.


…equations can’t make predictions about the real world? You’re a fucking idiot…that’s all equations do is make acurate predictions about the real world…

No, because toasters.

Or something. I really didn't follow the reasoning behind that one. "Reasoning". As it were.

By the way, I'd be careful not to repeat that comment around a kindergartener. You might embarass yourself.

You mean you guys believe that it's possible for an equation to predict (correctly) the outcome of the human or any other species?

Example please.

DERP!!!

Others have pointed out the foolishness of this statement. You should just acknowledge how incredibly stupid your claim was, or at least back down from it. But true to form, you can't resist further beclowning yourself.
