Actually, the reverse is the basis of science,  ironically.

You can't prove Newton's Theory of Gravity,  but given Einstein's Theory 
of Relativity, you can disprove Newton's theory .... or, more precisely, 
you can prove that Newton's theory is a reasonably approximation, but 
only until you consider certain situations. And Einstein's theories are 
disproven by the the Uncertainty Principle, and by String Theory .... 
which are refinements of Einstein. But it's impossible ( so far ) to 
prove any of these. Maybe String Theory will be proven, and then we'll 
know everything.

What does this have to do with Perl, kernels, or memory mapping?
