The jury is in and the case is closed on much of science.  No further
evidence need be considered for much of what constitutes science.  It's
just stuff that's known about nature, and "known" means it's true, not
just almost, kinda, we think it's true.  

I realize that this viewpioint contradicts the reigning philosophy of
science theology.  Sorry.
