Purposefully “vague” or “inconclusive” language like the following examples are frequently used in studies:
“Our study indicates that”
“The findings suggest”
“We postulate to…”
“may stop germs”
Why is this? Is it simply because they literally can’t conclude anything 100%? I read the following quote on a different thread, and perhaps this could somehow lead me to an answer, ” Science cannot prove; it can only disprove”?
