I get sick of those who cannot/will not recognise historical science
and assume physics is the only true science.Was it Bragg who said "all
science is physics the rest is stamp-collecting". What Moorad does is to
assume that science must always be experimental and simply ignores what
William Whewell called the palaeoaetiological sciences way back in c1840.
Historical and experimental sciences have different but overlapping
methodologies. There ARE parallels between historical science and human
history as both depend on ancient evidence. One artefacts are used in
history we have moved away from relying on human recorders (as if an
eyewitness is always reliable)
I cant help feeling that Moorad and others simply balnk out historical
