Fully one third of the current hypothesis in high energy physics are
untestable; the Standard Model fits current empirical theory fairly well,
and you'd be run out the back door permanently were you to accuse the big
boys at CERN or SLAC of running on faith.  But E still equals mc^2, Higgs
bosons still decay to leptons, and although not very pretty, the Standard
Model is still empirically pleasing.  Now tell me again why testability must
predicate science?
