Cenderawasih Posted November 18, 2021 Author Report Share Posted November 18, 2021 One thing I find interesting in all this (comments from other members welcome) is the following: I've been arguing against the existence of "The Scientific Method" for years. Needless to say, no originality on my part: that rascal Paul Feyerabend got the ball rolling way back in the 70s. The response tends to be one of outrage and disbelief, regardless of how much evidence and argumentation is provided by myself. Bannings have been incurred from similar sites LOL. On the other hand, one short quote from a Steven Weinberg or a an Albert Einstein tends to silence the naysayers, or at least cause them to reflect where evidence and ratiocination alone is ineffectual. Say what you like about the appeal to authority "fallacy" . . . but it works! There must be a lesson for us all in here somewhere . . .
