That a few occasions have observable reasons will get reified right into a First reason or, in a extra secular age, to the thesis that each occasion is fatalistically made up our minds. one other challenge of convoluted introspection is that tiny yet the most important assumptions slip in, usually unawares, with the outcome that densely argued counter-tomes are written in answer and no development is made towards any type of consensus. At backside, subjectivity reigns. I exaggerate. towards the opposite pole of the subjectivity-objectivity continuum, consensus between scientists is in truth continually at an outstanding fit distance from compulsive unanimity.

What cinched the case for Copernicus was once no longer simplicity--after all alchemy is less complicated than chemisty. Nor was once it experiment--there have been no moon photographs again then. relatively it used to be Newton's foundations. He verified a physics for the earth and the heavens alike.
