It still seems like you
All of those things are flawed, however. They contradict themselves at times, to say nothing of grabbing holding of Truth. Because I "appeal" to something doesn't mean what I am appealing to has substance.
Are you certain of this? Are all generalized feelings equally valid or true? Are you saying that all truth claims are verified through empirical means?
These concepts we have of "truth" and "facts" are in my view only colloquial expressions. At their height they express a generalized feeling about what is true and what is factual, or in the case of science, what can be shown through testing and experiment.
All quantum mechanics demonstrates is that at the subatomic level particles may behave differently than matter does at different levels, it does not prove that nature lacks uniformity. Quantum physicists are still able to make accurate predictions because there is uniformity even at that level. However, I do not want to head down some rabbit trail concerning QM because itís not relevant to my proof.
That does not mean these things are Truth or Facts. Even now in quantum mechanics they are showing that the foundational laws of the universe do not always apply at the subatomic level. How can there be "knowledge" when even the basic understandings we have about the physical universe can and does change over time?
