Thank you for another interesting post, with which I have no argument! However, my main OP point remains: there is ony one of those subjects which has an objective, independent method, a step-by-step process to follow in order to reacha proof ( i.e. the 99.99% type of proof) and that is Science. For whatever one studies in Philosophy, Art or Religion, there is not a similarly objective, step-by-step set of rules to follow. If aScience hypothesis includes aspects which cannot be directly and independently observed, then it cannot comply with the scientificmethod.
