Philosophy Wire: Termites, fairies, theories...

____Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2013-03-30]: Termites, not fairies, cause plant circles in African deserts after all. [source: Science News] But what is the difference? If we think again, we will see that in any case a small creature with more than 4 limbs and the ability to breath in the Earth's atmosphere was indeed the cause of the weird formations. How much do we need to call a theory "false" and a new one "correct"?
