Example text

The third statement is about what the data say. Because the beta proposition coincides with empirical data b, the theory cannot be rejected. Fact b does not refute the theory. Moreover, the theory explains why the leaves of trees form this type of canopies, that is, the why-question is solved. In the case of falsifying several theories at the same time, given data set b, some theories will be false and some will be consistent. Those theories that survive the entire process of falsification will become the valid theories.

Due to the use of abstraction, it may not fit all the observed cases. Therefore, the refutation of a theory needs to be based on statistical analysis. The empirical prediction of a theory must then be confronted against the relationship between the average values of the observed variables. If a theory on income inequality predicts that incomes of workers depend directly upon their years of schooling, this prediction is refuted by facts if the average incomes are inversely related to average years of schooling; it is not refuted if the relationship is direct.

If the theory does not fail, it can be accepted; if it does fail, then ‘ model fails, but not the theory. Using auxiliary assumption A‖, another model ( ‖) is constructed and submitted to the falsification process; if it fails, then another model is constructed, and so on, until model n . If the n models fail, then the theory fails and a new theory is constructed, and the algorithm is applied again. 2. Let 1 and 2 be now two models of a theory called theory. The falsification algorithm is now applied to the models.
