Is there such a thing as "settled science?"


A popular phrase, often used by politicians and activists these days, is "settled science." How is this possible if the chief activity of science is to constantly test theories and even laws? If science becomes "settled" what happens to inquiry and freedom? Is there room for dogma in science?
