    in = not, sciens = knowing... Notice the word "science" doesn't have the "in" modifier. Science derives from the Latin scire, "to know," more particularly the present participle sciens, "knowing."

    However, no theory or hypothesis can ever be proven 100% correct, therefore, it could be said that no scientist 'knows' anything.

    What do you mean? There are plenty of hypothesis which proves 100% correct. If it agrees with experiment within a uitable degree of accuracy, it *is* 100% correct.
