Discuss the ways that theories can be related to evidence
Years ago doctors noticed that people who smoke have more lung ailments than nonsmokers. They developed the theory that smoking was bad for a person's health. After that they found concrete evidence to back up their theory.
Think about global warming. In recent years scientists have gathered evidence that proves that people are at least partly responsible for global warming.
I remember when I was in elementary school back in the Dark Ages. I noticed how if it weren't for the Atlantic Ocean, the Americas would fit neatly with Europe and Asia, like a jigsaw puzzle. Scientists wondered if the continents were once joined. Over the years they found a lot of evidence that proved their theory correct.
