Short Answer

If two different theories describe experimental observations equally well, can one be said to be more valid than the other (assuming both use accepted rules of logic)?

A theory is a well-explained aspect of law, concept, fact, and hypothesis.

No, none of them (theories) are considered more valid than the others.

Step by Step Solution

Step 1: Using logic

When both the theories equally explain the facts, we cannot say one is more valid. To prove any one of them valid, a sort of validation is required for that one over the other, which is impossible as both the theories say the same points.

Step 2: Conclusion

No, none of them (theories) are considered more valid than the others.
