    This is the great scientist Polanyi I hold that the propositions embodied in natural science are not derived by any definite rule from the data of experience, and that they can neither be verified nor falsified by experience according to any definite rule. Michael Polanyi No inanimate object is ever fully determined by the laws of physics and chemistry. Michael Polanyi So long as we use a certain language, all questions that we can ask will have to be formulated in it and will thereby confirm the theory of the universe which is implied in the vocabulary and structure of the language. Michael Polanyi " a series of observations which at one time were held to be important scientific facts, were a few years later completely discredited and committed to oblivion, without ever having been disproved or indeed newly tested, simply because the conceptual framework of science had meanwhile so altered that the facts no longer appeared credible." Michael Polanyi

    Just for the record, I am not some religious fanatic that is anti-science, or some disgruntled person who hates society. I simply fail to see how science (in general, there are some exceptions), is so factually undisprovable, and empirical, when "scientific fact" has been changing throughout the millennia. 600+ years ago, all the top scientists believed that the Earth was flat and that the sun and planets revolved around the solar system, then later disproven, same thing with smoking cigarettes, and black holes, and the stages of human evolution, and the age of the universe, and much more. I hear people all the time saying things like, "Science is fact, and therefore we can only debate with science". NO, science is NOT fact, since facts are reality, and unchanging, and that is not what science is all the time (especially the more unempirical sciences like Physics, Psychology, and Anthropology). I also hear people saying that science should be used for debating politics, well no, since most science is constantly changing, politicians should not have to debate anyways, they just say honestly what they believe and what they can do for the country and people vote for that, anything else, including "debating other politicians" is uncivilized and absurd. I only want to hear things that are factually undisprovable every single time they are tested, not theories, and hypotheses regarding the consensus of scientific data and scientist.

    Even doctors a century years ago could see that the exact nature of the mind and personality stem from the exact nature of the brain. They mistakenly thought they could literally cut the insanity or evil out of the patient's brain. That's how lobotomies were developed, because it's obvious that the mind is generated by the brain. That's also how drugs work, they change your brain and so they change the way you act. there is no debate, the mind and consciousness come and depend on the functions of the brain.
