Re: ... and more questions unanswered ...
Lets do a experiment. Go out and find a large rock, say 50 pounds.
Now do a thought experiment, predict whether or not it will fracture your foot if you drop it. Or will it somehow defy physics and spare your tootsies.

Empirically speaking we only know what may happen. Science makes predictions based on facts and evidence.

What do you think will happen, and why? If you are ardent that science is a inferior way of gathering knowledge, then you should have no problem dropping the rock with a hope and prayer the outcome will be favorable. Please let us all know how it turns out.
