Hi Susan can you provide examples of contemporary scientific hypotheses that can be directly and independently observed?
well, no, one does not observe a hypothesis anyway! The hypothesis is either a guess a conjecture, or a 'what-if', based on observations (via the senses), which needs to be agreed by others, and in my opinion the word hypothesis would be better left out at this point. It should perhaps be saved until there are possible grounds for designing tests to test a hypothesis made after observations. After all, if the hypothesis fails, then it would seem to follow that the observations were either non-existent, or that they were incorrectly interpreted by supposed observers.

Particular examples are not needed to talk about the method - the scientific method.

Susan
