However, with the "new science", we can successfully explore previously off limit subjects with confidence. Yours Truly has been privileged to see gold coins, metal pots (bean dinners are common fare in the midwestern states) and rainbows. Since Yours Truly has seen these items, my statement is the required proof of their existence. The methodology of new science allows us, rather it compels us, to previously impossible conclusions. Before the introduction of the new science, the existence of leprechauns has been denied, mostly by atheist non believers, who lacked faith in the well documented activities of leprechauns. Now, however, the world has proof of gold, pots and rainbows, and the combination of these items will prove the existence of leprechauns. Fortunately, we are under no obligation to demonstrate, stepwise, how we arrive at our conclusion- we merely state the existence of leprechauns has been proved, now and for all time.
We are confident that the harvest from the fields of the new science will be bountiful. We eagerly anticipate proofs on previously verboten subjects, such as squaring the circle and perpetual motion. Yours Truly will be convinced of the validity of the methods of the new science when the definitive proof regarding youths who reason is peer reviewed.
