If the science only works 97% or 99% of the time, or there is counter arguments that can not be absolutely disproven all of the time then the little bit of science in question is still a theory.
But I see this a lot, global warming believers and bible thumpers not grasping how basic science works or is applied.
Scientific laws are the only settled science, but even they can be challenged.
If I give your wife Thalidomide,there's only a statistical likelihood that your children will have feet growing out of the tops of their heads.
Do you want to wait until they can predict with certainty,which children,and what deformities are certain until you take her off the medication?
