Both hypotheses are adequate to account for the data the learner has so far encountered. To any unbiased scientist, though, H1 would surely appear preferable to H2, for it is simpler — itis shorter, for one thing, and does not refer to theoretical properties, like being a NP, being instead formulated in terms of ‘observable’ properties like word order. Nonetheless, H1 is false, as is evident when you look at examples like (3):
CORRECTION: This misconception likely stems from introductory science labs, with their emphasis on getting the "right" answer and with congratulations handed out for having the "correct" hypothesis all along. In fact, science gains as much from figuring out which hypotheses are likely to be wrong as it does from figuring out which are supported by the evidence. Scientists may have personal favorite hypotheses, but they strive to consider multiple hypotheses and be unbiased when evaluating them against the evidence. A scientist who finds evidence contradicting a favorite hypothesis may be surprised and probably disappointed, but can rest easy knowing that he or she has made a valuable contribution to science.
Hypothesis Testing in the Real World - Jeff Miller,
The World-Mind hypothesis, as presented below, offers an explanation of origins that is respectfully alternative to both Darwinian Evolution Theory and Intelligent Design Theory. In order to cater to an as-broad-as-possible audience, this hypothesis is written deliberately in secular, non-Biblical idiom (1 Corinthians 9:22).

The Input hypothesis is Krashen's attempt to explain how thelearner acquires a second language – how second language acquisition takes place. The Input hypothesis is only concerned with 'acquisition', not 'learning'.According to this hypothesis, the learner improves and progresses when he/she receives second language 'input' that is one step beyond his/her current stage of linguistic competence. For example, if a learner is at a stage 'i', then acquisition takes place when he/she is exposed to 'Comprehensible Input' that belongs to level 'i + 1'. We can then define 'Comprehensible Input' as the target language that the learner would not be able to produce but can still understand. It goes beyond the choice of words and involves presentation of context, explanation, rewording of unclear parts, the use of visual cues and meaning negotiation. The meaning successfully conveyed constitutes the learning experience.
That’s just what the hypothesis forbids, you say
Endosymbiotic eukaryosynthesis and early man's domestication of animals and food staples are not happy accidents. The world-mind hypothesis suggests that domestication stems from a very deep instinct, which is harbored in every nucleus of every eukaryote. Mankind turned wolves into dogs because our prokaryotic ancestors turned bacteria into mitochondria. The mechanism by which this happened, however, may not be that complicated:
Exploring Life's Origins: Understanding the RNA World
An empirical hypothesis, or working hypothesis, comes to life when a theory is being put to the test, using observation and experiment. It's no longer just an idea or notion. It's actually going through some trial and error, and perhaps changing around those independent variables.
