Theory And Supposition

The whole of chemistry is based on theory and supposition. Chemical bonds do not exist as they are visually accepted. It seems to work so leave well alone, yet build on supposition. This can lead ultimately to situations where observation is rejected because the 'model' does not allow it. The model wins over observed and witnessed fact. Very unscientific if this were to happen.

Closed and limited thinking only allows certain possibilities that fall inside the box. Anything else is automatically rejected because it doesn't fit.

The paradoxical scientist does exist.
