"Say that again, where does science start? If no statement can be proven 100% then what does prove your answer?"

Ok so lets take that the earth moves? We thought for a very long time that the earth didn't move. While studying the sky's Galileo saw evidence that it did and was actually moving. So his answer is the earth moves. Then he used his research that he already had to prove his answer. He work backwards from his conclusion that if all this evidence is correct then the earth must move. No where have I read that he postulated out of no logic or intuition that earth moves. He saw evidence that suggested it. And then proved his conclusion.
