The story behind the green-lumber fallacy is a picturesque way of showing that a false conception of the underlying dynamics might be irrelevant for correctly and profitably dealing with those dynamics.
Here are some examples in addition to those usually given:
1. In the history of Mathematics, much results regarding continuous functions was obtained before the notion was finally precisely pinned down.
2. In the history of Physics, in the subdiscipline of Thermodynamics, much was discovered about heat before the subtle dynamics of heat was fully formulated.
3. In the history of Physics, propagation of electromagnetic radiation was correctly described in terms of ether, something later shown not to exist.
