An unsolved problem of science. There are 2 step of this project. Approved Step 1 then you can start Step 2. Must have posted ANSWER in 5/31
Example of the 6 step evaluation is uploaded
The first step for this project is to find a topic of interest to you which I will also approve of. I will approve of any topic which meets these criteria:
(a) it must be an unsolved problem of science, specifically one with (at least) two well-defined and disjoint theories (see below for links to unsolved problems in science). That is, each theory is telling a very different causal story about what’s happening that explains the phenomenon in question so that, if one theory is correct, the other must be incorrect. You will just pick the best (in your opinion) two theories, even if there are many. Avoid “theories” that just point to statistical correlations but that do not propose a clear causal account. For instance, suppose some disease D for which science has not yet figured out the pathogenesis. Theory A states that M causes N which causes O which causes D. Theory B states that R causes P which causes O which causes D. You will then weigh the evidence and make a decision which theory is best supported (so far).
(b) Secondly, there must be empirical (experimental) support for each of the two theories. You will not be able to write the prediction or data steps without there being extant empirical research results.
There are many unsolved problems of science that meet these two requirements among the following links:
