why is it wrong to think of a scientific law as a universal statement of truth?

    Many laws of physics turn out to be not quite right, r perfectly accurate, when experiments of higher accuracy are performed.

    Newton's "Laws" of gravity and mechanics turned out to be not quite right when Einstein discovered relativity. The conservation of energy "law" can be violated for brief intervals according to quantum mechanics. Other examples can be given.
