What is Hooke's Law?

It shows that the experimental results NEVER confirm with  the theoretical results. It is assumed that there are errors when there are NONE.

So, if he did get it wrong, perhaps you could say for what actual amount of stress and what actual strain would the law stop working?
If I were to use a watch hairspring, what load would you need to get it to extend? Then, for a car suspension spring, what load would be needed?

And, of course, the laws describing how materials distort must work for compression as well as stretching. And then there's the question of what is your actual definition of the 'no load' condition. Does it include the effect of the weight of the spring itself?

Rather than keeping on about Hooke getting it wrong, I suggest that you either repeat some measurements with a view to serious accuracy - taking all the forces into account -and also that you read how the interaction at molecular level relates to the measurements on a macroscopic scale.

Don't just mindlessly bat on about how conventional Science seems to be at fault. Do you really think it is another huge conspiracy? If you really do, then you owe it to yourself to get a lot better informed. (About Physics and about the basics of experimental measurement technique.)
