WHY we don´t accept the null hypothesis?

Citation:
Ronald A. Fisher succinctly discusses the key point of our paper:
_______In relation to any experiment we may speak of? the ?null hypothesis,? and it should be noted that the null hypothesis is never proved or established, but is possibly disproved, in the course of experimentation. Every experiment may be said to exist only in order to give the facts a chance of disproving the null. ______
