You would be wrong.

Science does not deal with fact.

If it did, it would not be referred to as science.

Science is an investigative process.

Therefore, it deals with innuendo and speculation and from that a hypothesis is derived which is then considered to be fact if agreed upon within the scientific community.

This does not mean, however, that their findings are the absolute truth.
