I too am confused by your use of the term "falsified" in your original comment. You're using it in a way that suggests that having been falsified is a GOOD thing, no? E.g., " and now those scientific principles [the ones you just got through extolling] have been falsified by a century of broadly repeeted [sic] and verified checks". If so, then you're misusing it. Falsified means dis-proven. You don't want your scientific theories to be falsified. You DO, however, want them to be FALSIFIABLE, because if they aren't, they're not scientific theories.
