How about it Susan?
Where is YOUR evidence of the scientific method in action by various researchers? Do you wear a coat of pretty colors, or are you wearing a plain colored jacket? How is your display of knowledge better than, especially in this OP, the Artists, Religious, Philosophers and Experiential practitioners?
Do you NOT KNOW THAT YOU OWE EVERYTHING YOU KNOW TO OTHER PEOPLE?!!!
Give those people credit for raising, teaching, correcting , evaluating, and confirming that you have just tripped over your own feet? I have MANY TEACHERS. I know this as FACT. I don't need experiments to proove this outlay of knowledge. I have my memories and my own applications of such learned knowledge. That's why I am here: TO HONOR, IN MY LIFE, ALL OF THOSE PEOPLE WHO HAVE INFLUENCED ME--even you also!!
One remains a seed as yet to germinate
And florish. A seed is a potential forest, in due time. What shall one do to begin?
