I sure don't know why I engage in your semantical conversations. I guess I keep thinking if I state the obvious in enough different ways then eventually you'll have to take my point. Nothing is pure science or pure superstition. Both take place by individuals and everyone has his own knowledge, methods, and beliefs. Indeed almost every REAL scientist knows that intuition, imagination, and serendipity are far more important to most progress than knowledge and true science. You don't understand that last sentence and you wont say so. We'll come back to this same point that has always been a stumbling block to our communication and I had to figure this out on my own because you don't address what I'm actually saying. You address words and semantics. You'll go on believing in a black and white world where Peers determine reality and the rest of us must read their work and try to understand. There is no disagreement about fundamentals because science worked that all out centuries ago and now only crackpots and confused people don't accept the pronouncements of Peers.
I believe a great deal of what everyone believes is founded in language and what we see as obvious rather than in experiment and fact. I believe a great deal of our perspective is very poor for the interpretation of data and experiment. There's a reason that consciousness seems to affect experiment and I believe I've identified it and found a workaround. I believe that semantical arguments can never be productive and you can't get past words, phrases, symbols, and your own beliefs.
