IMHO there is no such thing as ‘settled science’. The very phrase is a contradiction in terms.
If it’s science, it’s not settled. If it’s settled, it’s not science.
Science is a never-ending process of enquiry into nature, and a never-ending process of updating our models. Science stops the moment someone – or some consensus – claims that our knowledge of a subject is ‘settled’.
Whenever I hear or read about ‘settled science’, my dogma detector moves into the red zone.
Hope Charles never gets offered $10 to jump off a bridge in order to demonstrate that some basic facts about Gravity haven't been settled.
Too much trouble, all he needs to do is put an airtight plastic bag over his head and tie it off around his neck to test scientific "dogma". If he is a Hindu maybe he could use his karma to run over his dogma.
