Nice philosophical point! If you had taken a course on the philosophy of science the importance of evidence from your 'experimental models' would be clear.
Newton had 'a hell of a lot of ' evidence for his 'Laws' of gravity, etc. and Einstein had a lot of evidence for his wonderful theories but even he was a bit dubious about quantum mechanics - spooky action at a difference and God playing dice, etc. But Newton was wrong and Einstein too was wrong. Their hypotheses and theories didn't go far enough.
And that is the REAL strength of science. You are only as good as the last experiment that supports or refutes your hypothesis.
And as for Rour 'obvious reasons' that the Moon cannot be used to demonstrate that lack of greenhouse gasses like CO2 mean that our planet Earth would be also at -50C on average. I'm not sure that it is obvious at all?
If our Earth's COs, methane and nitrous oxides dropped to zero ppm I think our climate change problem would be even more serious than that created by doubling of the concentration fo CO2 in our one and only atmosphere!!
