Rejection of Data

From Encyclopedia of Scientonomy
Jump to navigation Jump to search

When data points are rejected as inaccurate, the First Law (perhaps via the Theory Rejection Theorem) would predict that those propositions are replaced by something. What are they replaced by?

Given our current understanding of theories, we may see singular propositions as theories. As such, if we observe anomalies or other such phenomena, descriptions of these phenomena are seen as theories. The First Law predicts that these theories must be replaced when rejected. If by chance these observations are mistaken or inaccurate and their respective propositions are thus rejected, what are they replaced by? For example, astronomical databases trivially reject inaccurate data points from their databases. Are these data points replaced by anything?
