One difference is that my statement contains a
temporal index, whereas yours does not.

You seem unable to be consistent with your own
views on falsifiability.

Thus, physics is a "hopeful" enterprise.

Why do you "hope" for such things?

I will not repeat myself concerning the
objectives of "science" in relation to
political advantage.

You engage in a search for statements that cannot be falsified.

You do so with purpose. You may call it "hope" if you prefer
Orwellian newspeak.
