Ha. It's 1:30 in the a em and i ain't gonna be rationally explain nuffink.

But in passing lots of excellent science has been and is done in areas where mechanisms are unknown. Mendelian genetics, for example, muddled along quite happily for quite some time before the unit of inheritance was identified and described.

It isn't the availability of known mechanism that makes something science and wrong science can be and has been extremely useful and accurate enough for many purposes, see epicycles for one.

Tis an interesting topic though. Nighty night all.
