Science relies on evidence

Ultimately, scientific ideas must not only be testable, but must actually be tested — preferably with many different lines of evidence by many different people. This characteristic is at the heart of all science.


Performing such tests is so important to science because in science, the acceptance or rejection of a scientific idea depends upon the evidence relevant to it — not upon dogma, popular opinion, or tradition. In science, ideas that are not supported by evidence are ultimately rejected.

So again, I am asking for something that is inescapably necessary whenever science is being discussed. Where is the evidence for this steady state model which is not already better explained by other models?
