      scientists answer only very specific questions, those that can be tested. For example, Does gravity pull things towards the floor? This is a question that can be tested (by dropping things!) There are other questions that scientists tend not to answer in their professional capacity, an example would be questions of morality etc as these are not testible.

      Hope this helps

      Hi @yunus67,

      Absolutely not there is always more to learn and find out.
