No, that’s close but it’s simplistic and is not technically accurate.  (& 'An', not 'A'.)

Buddy has a hypothesis:

The way I learned it (in England) was that even though "hypothesis" has a sounded 'h', it also has an unstressed initial syllable, so it gets an 'an'.  Similarly, "an historic occasion".   

However, on research, both are considered acceptable and "a" is reportedly winning out in America outside of academia, so I concede the point and apologize (although I'm going to stick with 'an').

From Grammerly Answers
 
Quote
there is a group of words of three or more syllables with the stress on the second syllable, such as historic, historical, hypothesis, hysterical, habitual, harmonica and hereditary, where people tended to still use "an" rather than "a". The "h" is less well sounded in these words compared with certain other words starting with "h" where the stress is on the first syllable such as history, histogram, hypothetical, holiday and hemorrhoid, or on the only syllable such as hand, host and hymn. Thus "an historic" is still often used. .... All in all, it appears that "a historic" will win the day, although "an historic" will still no doubt be used where the "h" sound is weak.


Now deal with the rest of the problems, which are far more serious.

I don't think that US academia cares about the fancy "an" usage, either. And the way "An" would stick out from all the rest that instead need an "A" makes the inconsistency an indicator of faulty grammatical logic.

Here's the page again. I bolded a recent sentence change. Surprise!

 
Quote

A "hypothesis" is an idea you can test.

Experiments are designed to test ideas in the form of theories, conjectures and questions.

Many hypotheses are intended to gather information without preconceptions.

What kind of fossils are in this layer?
What is the mass or magnetic moment of this nuclide?
Can we find more pulsars?

The result should as best as possible repeatedly be either true or false, hopefully no uncertainty.
Uncertain results may require the hypothesis be retested with a better experiment, or reworded.

Hypotheses may be philosophical or religious, but being scientific requires conducting a scientific test.

-

A "model" demonstrates how something works/happened.

A (computer, engineering or mental) model is a simplified description of the systematics of a process.
Models provide general insights, and are not normally expected to be the whole story.

Charles Darwin's "evolution by natural selection" theory contained a generalized “mental model”,
but the "natural selection" variable is a generalization that does not explain how living things work.

Questions regarding intelligent behavior requires cognitive models.
Instead of “selection” based terminology the basics become confidence, memory and guess.
What is called “natural selection” may happen on its own in a model, not need to be programmed in.

Models can constitute a test of whether we adequately understand something.

-

A "theory" explains how something works/happened.

The explanation can use words, equations, illustrations and other useful information.

The scientific theory in books by Charles Darwin explained how his model for speciation works,
which is now computer model tested using various Genetic/Evolutionary Algorithms.

The scientific theory in books by Albert Einstein explained how his cosmic model works,
which is now computer model tested by various models of the universe(s?).

For a scientific theory to be useful it has to explain a model/mechanism to experiment with.
Where that is left up to reader's imagination no theory even exists, which is scientific fraud.

-

A "law" is a math equation or relationship that approximates a behavior.

Newton's laws of motion are regularly used to calculate planetary orbits.
Einstein's laws of relativity are required for calculations where the speed of light is a factor.

He later mentioned having just finished RoboGames two weeks ago. Impressive event, and documentation:

And this week it's

I thought that some here might enjoy the signs that (at least his local community level) science is still alive and well. I sure did!

Well, yes you need to know about this.  The finch studies and the guppy studies have been at the forefront of the field for the last 30-40 years, and you contradict them every time you rail against natural selection.  Those guys have been MEASURING natural selection and documenting its effects for ages, and you keep treating it as non-existent by ignorantly dismissing it.

Quote
These natural experiments revealed bursts of change in the birds’ beaks after an exceptionally strong El Niño event in the early 1980s, for example,4 and in response to heightened competition for food between the medium ground finch (Geospiza fortis) and the large ground finch (G. magnirostris), after the latter’s migration to Daphne Major, the Grants’ research site, in 1982.5 Statistical analyses involving pedigrees that demonstrated the high heritability of beak morphology determined that these changes were primarily the result of genetic evolution, not phenotypic plasticity.
 This is not emergence, or self-similarity, or intelligent design, or molecular intelligence, or a trinity, or ridiculous claims based on an ill-thought-out and inapplicable "model" - it's just demonstration of natural selection in operation.

Quote
“[It was] a really powerful experiment,” Kinnison says. “They estimated that the loss of fitness in the wild from just one generation of having parents bred in captivity was pushing upwards of a 40-percent reduction in performance. It was shocking.”

These are people who have good operational definitions, good hypotheses that they are actually testing, and who are actually documenting valid stuff, unlike you.

The ID Lab-5 and upcoming Lab-6 critter perceives how many of a given thing there are, and where each is located:
intelligencegenerator.blogspot.com/
sites.google.com/site/intelligencedesignlab/home/IDLab6-0.zip

Counting them requires adding another layer of processing, where instead of the memory data elements forming a 2D or 3D map they form a "counter" circuit.

Do
Snowflakes = Snowflakes + 1
If Snowflakes > 1000 then goto 100
loop
100 Print "Yay! Blizzard"

My model proves my Theory of Blizzard Formation.
Also, my theory disproves Relativity.

Similarities to what you are doing may not be coincidental.

Go and read the Pharyngula essay, and note careful definitions of terms, careful attention to how well the concepts match reality, concern over not going beyond what can be legitimately claimed from the evidence, and avoidance of teleological reasoning.

I just finished setting one of the earlier successful test versions for 5 feeders in its environment. There are here 5 blue colored places "in its mind" seen signaling the location of food in the network form, instead of 1 that is now normally used for testing. Discerning a "number of" things is cognitively simple.

There is a chance that the .exe will not run on your computer due to Windows no longer including full support for Visual Basic, but the code should work fine for those who have VB installed and can run from the source code.

There is only one "percept" at a time being show in the illustration, but where more than one of the same thing is being "perceived" a word choice may be given plural form in a sentence.

I did not test their system but it's relevant to percepts. In the model I have a number of separate percepts (5 above) already exist at the same time in its visual memory. What is shown in the animated illustration is a one at a time accounting of each percept, perhaps a way to more accurately "count" them.

There does not need to be a language center to give each possible precept a name. Things are (in a biological brain) categorized according to similarity in shape, size, color, odor, motion, sound, etc..  What to name them is only relevant to animals that have a language subsystem that needs to name things, but the process all starts by detecting/perceiving/mapping all of the visible things (percepts) around it, into a visual memory. It's then just common sense that a "number" of similar things can physically exist in the environment, and the same number can exist in our mind.

Although what you said was meant to be a compliment it still seems to me like my thanking academia for participating in the scientific process. I did not want to go through all the work of showing the abundance of layer upon layer of traces, for nothing!

Thanks now most needs to go to Patrick Getty, Sebastian Dalman, and other young science talents who later became the academic experts who most studied/study the tracksite.

And speaking of thanks and credits this is how I worded the now online credits on the title page of the Scientific Method presentation:

There has been a recent development from the embattled Blue Brain project. A new paper seems to have all the navigation network geometric connectivity I was previously only able to guess at, for going from 2D to 3D and other things like rounding out the hexagonally shaped wave. This reply (and one before it) briefly explains:

I recall mentioning in this thread that with all considered the Swiss/European Blue Brain project may still have been worth the over (in equivalent US currency) billion dollars that was spent. There is still much left for me to study but what I already saw was already a big help to me. It has the geometry I was stuck on and a wealth of information for how to better dimension the RAM(Dim1,Dim2,Dim3,Dim4,,,) arrays of the ID Lab, even down to the well networked synapse level.

The theory of intelligent design holds that certain features of the universe and of living things are best explained by an intelligent cause, not an undirected process such as natural selection.
