Increase Knowledge by Failing to Refute, but With Good Reasons to Fail


increase knowledge by failing to refute, but with good reasons to fail

If you just try to reject an hypothesis, you will always find a good reason to. Therefore, if you try to apply the scientific method by trying to refute hypothesis, you might not do anything at all. It is important to find a way to decide whether you have a good reason to refute the hypothesis.

You may have to first try to confirm the hypothesis, believe in it and then try hard to break it in good faith.
