valuable if someone picked this up for a regualr posting
here are a couple considerations
the definition of science on wiktionary
the wikipedia listing for "the philosophy of science"
1) logic is based on inference, induction or deduction
2) pure induction requires you know the whole to derive all the
pieces, who knows "the whole"?
3) pure induction requires you know all the pieces to derive the
whole, who knows all the pieces?
4) partial induction can be validated by logical proofs and confirmed
by observation, it can start with either one
for instance, all red cows are cows
5) partial deduction only results in probailities, for instance,
chickens trust a farmer who feeds them 100 times, then on the 101 time
the farmer harvests the chicken, there is 100% probaility but that
requires in statistical means a "theory of anything" and not just a
"theory of everything"
6) abstraction or imagination are not clear to me if they even exist,
assuming logic only, same with illogic
I have done some reading on www.talkorigins.org which is an FAQ for
talk.origins, I am not satisfied with the following in the preface
The primary reason for this archive's existence is to provide
mainstream scientific responses to the many frequently asked questions
(FAQs) that appear in the talk.origins newsgroup and the frequently
rebutted assertions of those advocating intelligent design or other
