Node Text: Theory is a scientific term that, in this instance, does not mean "speculation"

In science, the term theory is often used as "a plausible or scientifically acceptable general principle or body of principles offered to explain phenomena". When talking about evolution, gravity, or electricity, this is how the term is being used.
