Suppose a community has an accepted theory that asserts that it is the final and absolute truth. By the Third Law we deduce the method: accept no new theories ever. By the Second Law we deduce that no new theory can ever be accepted by the employed method of the time. By the First Law, we deduce that the accepted theory will remain the accepted theory forever.1p. 165-167


This reason for Dogmatism No Theory Change theorem (Barseghyan-2015) was formulated by Hakob Barseghyan in 2015.1
