    However, rejecting our null hypothesis on the other hand can support our reasoning, which can be strengthened from replicated and new research. Within the analysis we test the null hypothesis, to help us suggest whether our hypothesis could be a possible reason for the results we collected. The more we replicate the research and reject the null in testing – the more and more possible our initial hypothesis is suggested to be plausible.[1] Why is a null hypothesis required in research? How is

    - Hazard and Mitton. The conventional interpretation of the spectral lines observed in quasars is based on the redshift hypothesis. Three hypotheses have been advanced to account for the supposed redshifts: 1. Cosmological hypothesis; the redshifts are due to the expansion of the universe, 2. Gravitational hypothesis, 3 Local-Doppler hypothesis; in this hypothesis the redshifts are due to the Doppler effect, but the quasars are relatively nearby and have nothing to do with the expansion

He believed that no more than two species of a particular fish could occur in any one lake. Judging by what he must have already observed, he came to the conclusion that he needed to compare the different species that had evolved independently of other pairs. Question and Hypothesis Robinson had questions about whether or not constraints imposed by distinct environments were responsible

    or is there proof? Philosophy offers such proof, contained in the dream hypothesis of the Buddha and Plato (and, more famously, Descartes). The dream hypothesis reveals our common ground. It refers to a familiar experience in terms of which young people of every time and place can understand why routine, authority, definition and first principle, category, criterion, perception and paradigm might fail.

I’ve heard about home experiments where one talks to potted plants, which was less strange since the plants were actually alive, but could the same really be said about store-bought rice? Despite my misgivings, I was perfectly willing to conduct
