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.
