Can somebody be said to have "discovered" a theory? I doesn't sound right to me. Jollyfish.gifGenghis Marauding 08:41, 1 March 2008 (EST)

Yes, what verb would go with theory? Invent, come up with, think up, create, imagine, formulate, concoct, conceive? My money is on "formulate" although if this were conservapedia "concoct" would be a winner.--Bobbing up 09:07, 1 March 2008 (EST)
I'd say "formulate" as well. Or "develop", maybe. --AKjeldsenGodspeed! 09:24, 1 March 2008 (EST)

It might be better to drop theory of evolution and just say co-discoverer of Natural Selection. Rylon 13:42, 1 March 2008 (EST)
