Well, actually...this is a well respected part of science...

Given how fundamental this is to science, and how if you even went to university at all this kind of thing is covered in the very first lectures (yes, a spherical cow is a perfectly valid approximation, it's ok to be 90% correct instead of 100%, all of science itself is about being 99.9...% correct, nothing is actually certain). So it appears that you should stick to your domain of expertise, which is apparently nitpicking and using uncommon english words.

Another poster pits themself.
