I've been fond of Peter Carroll's "HD8" cosmological model for a while now. I wouldn't go quite so far as to say I believe in it, but it is probably somewhat closer to "the truth" (i.e., "what future generations will broadly opt to believe") than the current model. I would be very much surprised to learn that another human being around here has even heard of this shit, so here: http://vixra.org/pdf/1601.0026v1.pdf is the most up-to-date version of the hypothesis I am aware of. About a year-and-a-half back, I read an interesting, but appallingly-moderated, debate between the hypothesis's architect and a polemicist for the mainstream model, and despite admittedly allowing more than a few of the details to pass by well above my head, I basically came away with the impression that neither HD8 nor ΛCDM would have made it through a fair and intelligently-organized debate intact.

Since this thread seems be operating with a fairly liberal definition of theory (no dictionazis having yet intervened with the obligatory lesson on the nomenclature of the scientific method), I'll add that I am of the opinion that our education system could be at least marginally improved by making Gödel's Incompleteness Theorems and Münchhausen's Trilemma mandatory curriculum for any high school student smart enough to make it into the lower tiers of algebra.

It's neither dead nor alive until you open the box.

I find some conspiracy theories to be interesting. Scientific ones like evolution are ridiculous though..

I always thought it would be kind of an interesting experiment to see what would happen if people who deny that evolution occurs were not allowed access to healthcare options which have arisen out of the field of evolutionary medicine, instead having their physicians sarcastically explain how great it would be if evolution was true, because then [insert treatment option here] would have been possible and explaining in detail how our knowledge of evolutionary processes might have given rise to such advances — but that sadly, since evolution does not occur, the patient's options are limited. I wonder how many Americans would still be holdouts against evolution after fifteen or so years of such a policy.

(Obviously I would not wish to see anything like this actually be implemented, but it is a kind of fun thought experiment to highlight the absurdity of the perspective.)

There are obviously many types of evolution but like most people I am talking about human evolution..
