      Hard to know. You need evidence to disprove a theory. If you were an astronomer (or someone with access to a telescope), then maybe you would know.

      I think it will be so interesting to see what we believe to be true now that is disproved in the future.

      You will live longer than me…may be we’ll find out we’ve been wrong about a lot of things all along. There is a lot of good literature on some of the things people suspect these things may be!
