Plato's Timaeus, the Big Bang, and the Problem of Scientific Knowledge
Luc Brisson - Author
F. Walter Meyerstein - Author

These are inventions of the human mind. The scientific knowledge of the universe is entirely composed in a series of axioms and rules of inference underlying a formalized system. There is no logical relati...(Read More)
