So I'm either incurably stupid (apology acknowledged), or uneducated. My goodness, how did you manage to get that stick so far up your ass?

Our knowledge of Europa, along with the majority of other extraterrestrial bodies, is based on distant images (fly-by imagery via probe, in this case) and theories based on the limited knowledge that we have here on Earth.

The point being made is that theories can only take us so far. We have no samples, no hands-on examples, and really nothing to base what we know of Europa on other than an educated guess based on pictures. Stating theories as fact and minor connections as definitive proof is a major problem in the average person's interpretation of the scientific community's findings. Instead of saying that researchers -think- something or -believe- something based on their guesses, we state it as solid fact, spreading misinformation while slapping actual knowledge in the face.

The reason this week's theory is important is because we don't KNOW about salt water on Europa... Period. We do not know. We have simulations, tests, and educated guesses; that's it. Therefor, simply because one study done in the past says something MIGHT be true does not mean that it is, and further studies are warranted. Multiple different studies saying the same thing is true increase the chances of accuracy, but are still not %100 without a sample. Which we do not have.

Therefor, good sir, get yourself educated. Don't spout off theories like facts, don't let your brain assume you're of a greater intelligence than your peers because you have misunderstood the work of people who actually know what they're doing. Learn to think as an individual, learn to understand the difference between theory and fact, and learn to appropriately assess the purpose of new studies on old information. Until then, willfully ignorant individuals like yourself are the last thing the scientific community needs. People with your mentality do better in religion.

Unlike the colloquial understanding of the word theory, which means guess, in science a theory is a collection of proven, tested facts.

You don't understand how science works, yet still you believe you can argue. You, sir are an ignorant person, good day.
