A theory is a set of explanations for the total of obsevations. Important philosophers of science believe that a theory can never be proven because new observations may be proving the contrary. A theory becomes more credible when there is a growing number of supporting observations. Especially when coming from different scientific disciplines.

A good example of a theory is the evolution theory of Charles Darwin which describes the origin of species. In this case, there is an overwhelming amount of observations which support this theory.
