We're about to do our first practice presentation in TOK, and I came up with this example and wanted to hear your opinions on it. Is it relevant enough? Specific enough? Supportive of my knowledge issue enough? This is my knowledge issue: To what extent does the continuous evolution of scientific knowledge suggest that at any one point in time it is insufficient? •Water is boiled when heated.•A pot full of water is set to low heat without a lid. Will take a long time•Put the pot of water on medium heat with a lid half on, water will take less time to boil.•Put the pot of water on high heat with the lid completely covering the pot, water will boil quickest. •By continually improving the scenario, does that mean that boiling the water on low/medium heat is ‘insufficient’ information because it takes the longest time?•If something can be continually improved, wouldn't all scientific knowledge be inaccurate at some point in time? Thank you!
