One would hope you understand how Piltdown man was recognized as a fraud. The very idea behind science would be to always question and evaluate what is considered fact...this is why it progresses and improves. There is a very good reason for the steps to scientific law....Ideas become hypothesis after minimal data is gathered. Hypothesis becomes theory after large scale data is evaluated and studied by multiple individuals or groups and remains such until there are no longer accepted reasons to question it. It takes quite a bit of evaluation and verification to become scientific law....and generally a long period of time. As for beginnings, the Abiogenesis hypothesis is currently heading toward theory....though as with all hypothesis it takes time and verification. The creation myth has not become hypothesis after thousands of years, because it cannot be studied.
