You Can't Prove They Don't Exist


#59 In Theory
I have this theory that Ancient Egypt's decline was due to improvements in tomb security. Tomb robbery was an essential part of the economy, returning wealth into the system and eventually back to pharaohic control.   As tombs became harder to rob, the flow of wealth dried up and the economy collapsed.  That's an interesting idea but you have to be careful when you use the term 'theory'. As used in science, a theory is an explanation or model based on observation, experimentation, and reasoning, especially one that has been tested and confirmed as a general principle helping to explain and predict natural phenomena. (The More You Know) What the hell is that? I don't know. It shows up whenever I pontificate.
