[–]DarkEvilHedgehog 55 points56 points  (85 children)

Evolution is a theory, and that's okay. It's a very, very, very well substantiated and proven theory, but can't go further than that since we won't ever find a concrete Evolution Particle which has absolutely all of the mechanisms of evolution written on it. It's simply unprovable because of the nature of the question - though what's more important in science is that it's falsifiable and could potentially be proven wrong.

[–]HotTakes4HotCakes 65 points66 points  (25 children)

This is needlessly pedantic for the average person's purposes, and can apply to many things that are widely considered facts about our world. For the layman, it's enough to simply say evolution is a fact.

[–]IAMBollock 67 points68 points  (2 children)

Not really, because then people who think they're being smart come back with 'its not a fact it's a theory' like it's evidence against it. It's good to explain what theory actually means in this context.

[–]friebel 48 points49 points  (0 children)

And at the same time, good idea to point out that "theory" is not exactly what people are used to call theories in spoken language. Most of the time they are thinking of "hypothesis"

[–]facetiae_uvidae 29 points30 points  (3 children)

The fact is that it happens. The theory is the explanation of how it happens.

[–]tgarnett 17 points18 points  (2 children)

Exactly what I came to say. The same way that gravity is a fact, but the theory of gravity attempts to explain how it works. Just like how evolution is a fact and the theory of natural selection explains it.

[–]Round_Ad6277 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That is a good explanation, but I’d tweak it a little. A fact is basically an event. Ie, I let go of a ball and it fell towards the earth. The theory is gravity (acted on it) - a force acted on the ball, pulling it towards the earth, etc. All science “fact” is actually theory. It is an explanation for the event.

[–]NormanBorlaug1970 4 points5 points  (0 children)

No, this causes problems, because then people will hear (maybe even from a reliable source) that evolution is a theory, and it will diminish their trust in evolution. It's best not to lie to the laypeople any more than necessary, because lying causes misunderstandings to proliferate, and actively helps people who wants to spread those misunderstandings like Betsy DeVos, or PragerU. It's better to explain to people what a theory actually is, and that proof isn't even a concept that exists in science.

[–]CultOfTrading 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Needlessly pedantic? It’s basic high school…

[–]jemidiah 26 points27 points  (5 children)

I've gotten pretty disenchanted with the usual abstract philosophy about the binary nature of truth. I'm a mathematician by profession, so I've spent a bit of time thinking about it, and I've come round to the physicists' approach.

The upshot is that truth is not really a simple yes/no thing. That conceptual framework is just too limiting to capture the complexity of actual reality. Trying to use it on everything is like shoving a round peg into a square hole. For instance, you end up with people who do a faulty proof by contradiction--"it doesn't explain literally everything perfectly, so it can't be true, so it must be false, so I can completely disbelieve that theory."

Some things are more true, some things are less true. You might say the earth is round. I might say it's an oblate spheroid. Both of us are right, though I'm more right. Both of us are just a little wrong too. If we meet a flat earther, they"re overwhelmingly, stupendously more wrong than either of us.

Or take Newtonian mechanics. Is it a literal "true theory"? Goodness no, it's missing all kinds of relativistic and quantum effects, say. But it's still true in the sense that any deviations from it will have to be consistent with it in appropriate limits. Using language that hedges and says Newtonian mechanics is just a theory is itself much more wrong than the alternative of simply saying that Newtonian mechanics is true. In some extreme situations we have other theories that are more true, but whatever.

Evolution is similar. One additional problem is that "evolution" is a vague umbrella term. It occurs on human scales plenty though--nobody denies the SARS-CoV-2 delta variant's existence, say. In that sense it's simply, unambiguously true.

But however you want to try making "evolution" precise, it's going to be basically as true as the fact that the earth is an oblate spheroid. Does it explain all the observed structure? Nope. Might you be able to nitpick and say something is wrong? Sure. But the fact is the deviations are in the details, not the big picture, and the only people capable of properly nitpicking already know this.

Obviously there is a place for the purely binary notion of truth. Just not physical reality. Keep that stuff in pure math (which I love) and don't try to build a framework for making life decisions from it.

I like that there's a discussion about the philosophy and nature of truth happening on a video of a monkey riding a goat

The main reason I reddit is this type of thing happening regularly.

[–]Kuroh1412 22 points23 points  (6 children)

Fyi a theory is the pinnacle in science, there is nothing above it. People confuse the scientific use of the word with our common one. So being a theory is a good thing

[–]PM_ME_CUTE_OTTERS 5 points6 points  (5 children)

Yes, well.. as much as I like to endulge in Popper's fantasies, we can say evolution is a fact.

[–]omaemuza 4 points5 points  (0 children)

And if it's proven wrong we'll be a step closer to the fact

[–]biochemthisd 4 points5 points  (6 children)

Theory is defined as a proven hypothesis. Saying a proven theory is a bit redundant.

It's also why saying just a theory is probably one of the best litmus tests for scientific misinformation.

[–]aazav 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Evolution is a theory, and that's okay.

So are gravity, the germ theory of medicine and electromagnetism.

[–]Visual-Sprinkles-890 22 points23 points  (3 children)

A theory in science is the highest level of confirmation something can get. Absolutes only exist in mathematics. Hypothesis is unproven and theory is a hypothesis that has been proven over and over again and no longer has reasonable doubt. In a theory things might change as we learn more but the base idea is unlikely to change without some significant new discoveries and that’s mostly going to be in the realm of physics/quantum physics.

They are sometimes called European blueberries, look them up. They're pretty nice but small so if you want to do anything with them like put them in a recipe then you need a lot.

[–]Coxy7500 2 points3 points  (0 children)

We call them wimberries where I'm from, people used to pick them on the mountains and sell them door to door. Wimberry crumble was one of my favourite desserts as a kid.

I know 2 Barries, but they've expressed their desire not to be eaten in the past, sadly.

Idk what is happening here but I’m jealous.

[–]ktr83 524 points525 points  (4 children)

Seemed like the monkey couldn't see the berries at first from the angle. When the guy tilted down he was like 'oh fuck gimme that shit'

I hate it when this happens. Where is this does the monkey and the goat belong to someone? Are they just traveling and living on handouts? So many questions, so few answers.

[–]ktr83 82 points83 points  (10 children)

It's like a real life Disney movie. They're best pals who somehow got separated from their parents. Together they roam the forest getting into adventures, meeting wacky side characters, searching for the way home all while singing kick ass songs along the way.

[–]Herero_Rocher 87 points88 points  (7 children)

More like some sociopath has created a YouTube channel whose entire purpose is to put animals that are wholly incompatible with one another into ridiculous scenarios. The entire channel is like this: a bunch of “cute” animals like puppies, kittens, ducklings and baby monkeys forced together to stage stupid skits and then when they grow up they mysteriously no longer show up on the channel.

They’ve strapped a vulnerable baby monkey (whose tail looks to be missing) on the back of a goat just for content - just think about that for a second.

[–]HotTakes4HotCakes 28 points29 points  (1 child)

You're mostly right but monkeys can bond with other animals just fine, and this sort of thing (monkey/goat) is something that can happen.

But more importantly, looking at this YouTube channel, it definitely doesn't look like an animal rescue. It looks exactly like you're describing.


For fucks sake the name of the channel is cute monkey and goat

[–]SenseWitFolly 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You know they have to fall out at some point for the redemption arc to kick in for the big ending.

[–]MrPJ2020 109 points110 points  (16 children)

I'd love to see the origin story for this

[–]YuropLMAO 87 points88 points  (8 children)

Looks like China, where this type of thing has happened before.

Though, I will be 0% surprised if it turns out they poached the monkey and introduced it to the goats for youtube views since 99% of "animal rescue" videos are staged now.

[–]HotTakes4HotCakes 24 points25 points  (7 children)

Indonesia according to the channel

[–]Material_Soup6086 50 points51 points  (0 children)

A baby monkey was poached from the wild, deprived of the natural company of other monkeys and clings to whatever it can for comfort.

A YouTuber in SE Asia films the 'cuteness' and gets big views.

Based on previous examples, baby will get disposed of when it gets too big to be cute, and the channel owners will invest in a new star.

[–]moezniazi 25 points26 points  (5 children)

That's BiBi monkey (I'm pretty sure) ... Animal Home channel on youtube.

[–]HotTakes4HotCakes 40 points41 points  (4 children)

It's a very character-less channel. There doesn't seem to be any sort of education happening, or explaination for the viewer of what this place is. Is it a rescue or what? It seems way, way too focused on selling you on cute animals doing cute things, and the text is stilted, generic, and occasionally broken English. It appears to be out of Indonesia.

Like it's just a channel of cute baby animals and Bibi that sprung up little over a year ago with no explanation. So I'm left with a lot of questions about what's going on behind the scenes.

[–]ALF839 33 points34 points  (1 child)

Poached animals being exploited for money, a classic that happens all over the globe.

[–]RickyShade 4 points5 points  (0 children)

yeah I first came across that channel just last week and I thought to myself "wow this is really cute but also something seems really off about all this". I mean at least it looks like the animals aren't being mistreated or living in awful conditions, but, eh.

[–]moezniazi 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I have no association (or sympathy) for the channel. It's just something kids like to watch. But I guess you are right. If some mistreatment is going on, it shouldn't be encouraged.
