For eons it was debated if in fact all four feet of a horse left the ground at the same time, one side believed that it happened, others argued that it was impossible for a 1,000 pound animal to become airborne. Early photography proved that all four legs leave the ground at the same time. Today's cameras make it easy to capture. For me that is hard science, not theory, or speculation, but tangible evidence. We are on the cutting edge of understanding DNA and how the brain works (and fails.) I wonder how far we are away from understanding, and having proof of the causes of dementia. I doubt a "cure" will happen in my life time, but then in the mid 1800's no one though they could definitively answer the question about a galloping horse.
