I have some criticisms of this piece e.g."In science, ideas can never be completely proved or completely disproved." Scientists are well able to completely disprove some general hypotheses by reference to agreed counter examples, e.g the hypothesis that "all swans are white" is completely disproved by the observation of a single black swan.
