Synchronism of Method Rejection theorem (Barseghyan-2015) is an attempt to answer the following question: When a method is rejected, must it be the case that a theory has also been rejected?
See Synchronism vs. Asynchronism of Method Rejection for more details.
According to the synchronism of method rejection theorem, a method becomes rejected only when some of the theories from which it follows become rejected. By the method rejection theorem, a method is rejected when other methods incompatible with it become employed. By the Third Law, this can happen only when some of the theories from which it follows are also rejected.1
