What kind of epistemology do you accept?
Science works, use that.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

There is three forms of science;


3. Theoretical

4. Circumstancial

5. Scientific fact


Which do you prefer?

I would prefer real life science, not your bullshit science.

A theory in the realm of science is a framework for explaining a set of facts. Facts in science are pretty easy to come by. Having an explanation for the facts that has explanatory power is just a bit more difficult.

I can't find anything referring to 'circumstantial science'. Unless, there is a word 'circumstancial' that I am not aware of.

There is "circumstantial evidence", that, by itself, is usually not very reliable with regards to existential claims. I mean, animists seemed to have plenty of circumstantial evidence that spirits inhabit plants, objects and natural phenomena.

In conjunction with demonstrable evidence, circumstantial evidence can make a case stronger, if it agrees with the demonstrable evidence.

For highly trained scientists, facts are easy to come by. All it takes it observation. The real work starts after the facts are accumulated.

To us practical plebs - mathematical equations describe laws that support the theories that explain the facts.
If new facts/evidence are discovered - theories and the supporting mathematics may change.

Humblebeauty, I found the mistake in the second line. The symbol after the squiggly one and before the curvy twisted thingy should be inverted.

It makes the equation much more pragmetic.
