Proof in science

I like this quote by referenced in this article in The Conversation by Geraint Lewis. It comments on the general media saying things like ‘science proves X’, when really most results only give a slightly improved likelihood of representing reality.

“I have approximate answers and possible beliefs in different degrees of certainty about different things, but I’m not absolutely sure of anything.” — Richard Feynman

Prove: from Latin probare ‘test, approve, demonstrate’ - it is not about being certain.
