    There is no significant difference between "theory" and "claim".  The difference is whether or not the theory or claim is the best existing explanation.

    If you have loaded one or another term with some sort of baggage of accuracy or lack of accuracy, then that's a matter of semantics that has been arbitrarily created.  The real heart of the matter is in the substance of the theory or claim, not in the generalized term used to signify the theory or claim.
