Nice article, and liked his closing paragraph - "World views are
not founded on logic".

If he was completely truthful he'd admit that even basic science
isn't founded on secure `knowledge. Although Darwin, and most
others once thought that gravity - based on `gravitational mass'
- ruled the universe, we now see that electromagnetism - based
on `inertial mass' - is equally powerful, ruling structure and
interactions down to the quantum level. And human science knows
nothing about either of those mysteries (apart from trying to
measure effects in ways that they hope have some relation to
`reality').

As B.K Ridley writes - "We can describe what happens quite
accurately and we think we understand. But really we do not. The
invisible influences of gravitation and electromagnetic fields
remain magic; describable, but nevertheless implacable, non-
human, alien, magic."

And the fact that inertial mass just happens to be exactly equal
to gravitational mass (so far as we can measure) for some
totally unknown reason, just makes the situation of `scientists'
more undignified.
