    Theories and my stupid friends (/me)

    So the other day, my English teacher was being quite inquisitive on topics of time travel, space time continuum, and various other theories, including time travel, Fermi paradox etc. She didn't seem quite informed in the topics and was just trying to understand all the information (bs) that my buds were giving her. The thing is though, that they too didn't really know much and were just spouting out whatever bs they read online.

    The point is that when I confronted my so called bud, and informed him that these are just theories, he told me that it isnt. He also said that whatever bs he talked about was true/ cannot be proven otherwise.

    Now me being the dickhead I am, told him that, he was being unreasonable and that these were just theories (including newton's "laws").
    Obviously he disagreed without any viable proof.

    What do you guys think? Who is right in this situation?

    P.S : I too am not every knowledgeable in these areas but I've read a few books and seen a few documentaries, but tbh I don't know.

    All of science is theoretical. Gravity is a theory.

    If you can't prove gravity, you're sure not as hell going to prove time travel.

    One you're friends ignorant as fuck.

    Yeah you can't prove they're false, but how remind me again, how does that make it true?

    Just like you and your dumb Illuminati shit, and that tv show 7 year olds watch.

    You can't prove it's false

    But you can't prove it's true

    Get over yourself.

    Just take some lsd, you'll understand everything.

    Newton's laws are proven to be true.
    Relativity Theories are also proven to be true, however some specific parts of the General/Special relativity are still not totally proven. However yes, according to quantum physics time travel IS possible, but according to GR it is not. Paradox much huh? That's why relativity and quantum theories are still fighting over each other.

    Gravity has been proven. Take a look at the deformation of light and space by massive objects.

    Thing is, every-things a theory. Gravity's a theory, evolution is a theory. But when we say theory in regards to gravity and evolution we are just saying that to the best of our knowledge they are facts. Tomorrow they could both be proved wrong, however unlikely it is. Some theories have more proof than others however,,, and I would assume your friends have none. Care to elaborate on what they were saying?:>

    There's a difference between a regular theory and a scientific theory. A lot of people seem to forget that a scientific theory is a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world that is acquired through the scientific method and repeatedly tested and confirmed through observation and experimentation (from google).

    I'm not sure whether your friend was wrong because you didn't give enough information.
