What happened to the bacon? Sir Francis Bacon is generally considered the father of inductive reasoning as used by modern science. See also this brief essay on the development of empiricism.

Whether that applies to "this Science" is another question. Perhaps, we ought to add David Chalmers? (uses "philosophical zombies" in discussions of mind and identity) or George A. Romero (Night of the Living Dead)?

Best, beth

[erix]: and now you are agnostic?
[james28909]: arunbear, your picking bits of history to fit your own narrative. right now, humans are smarter than in any of those times.
[james28909]: in order for there to be a mutation, there has to be a universe with laws setup that even allow a mutation.
[james28909]: everything past the first two things you piked from my posts are irrelevant to me and my beliefs. they are side effects.
[james28909]: two or three. if it has to do with how humans are handling said situations, then that is after they were able to evolve into those problems. agnostic means only believe with evidence. i took that from a tyson video
[james28909]: and it seems that racism suggest that there is indeed a better race, but that is for evolution to decide
[1nickt]: "right now, humans are smarter than in any of those times": define "smart"
[erix]: ah, now you're appraoch downvote-territory ;)
