But why not using the word "law"? Because it is polysemic and confusing?

@David Zaslavsky That's why I didn't asked there :) Maybe I should give it a try at Philosophy.SE, maybe this is concerned with philosophy of science.

The relationship between laws and theories is quite fuzzy, and seems that their relationship is only semantical rather than conceptual. Am I getting it?

comment Laws and theories
I'm trying to clarify some matters regarding this very topic, that the names may be subjective. A colleague said that theory was some sort of previous step to get into a law. I thought that laws where similar to mathematical axioms, they are the rules of the game. On the other hand, theories are the "why" and "how" as Lagerbaer said. I thought that theories cannot become laws, but I'm unsure.

comment Dark matter and dark energy references
I have a bachelor's in mathematics but I'm really interested in this topic. Do you have any advise concerning a strategy to understand the topic? What do I have to study first?
