1. for the theory to be correct, there must be at least two empirical sciences: chemistry and physics

2. empirical sciences require it to be the case that if researchers make observations, then they almost always accurately record what they observe

3. therefore, if the theory is correct and a researcher observes the result of performing procedure A, the researcher must almost always accurately record what they observe and if a researcher observes the result of performing procedure B, the researcher must almost always accurately record what they observe

4. a researcher can record the observation of result A by performing procedure C and a researcher can record the observation of result B by performing C

5. if the theory is correct, WLOG, the researcher will perform C

6. therefore, if the theory is correct, for all procedures A and B, the result must be such that it is recorded by C

7. there are As and Bs such that science tells us that they will not both be recorded by C

8. therefore, the theory is inconsistent with science

9. the theory requires science

10. therefore the theory cannot be correct.

Got it yet? It's pretty simple.

"No" what? You still haven't got it? And your response makes no sense. Let's suppose that at time one A is Zoon running his computer to tell him what the laws of chemistry and physics entail he will do at time three, the computer returns "C", then at time two B is Zoon on some other computer using different software also running a prediction of what he will do at time three, do you understand that if the theory is correct and these computers are running programs that do what they're designed to do, then either the second computer also returns "C" or the theory is falsified?GrahamH wrote:No,

If a researcher can perform procedures A, B etc those procedures can include any appropriate recording steps. No problem. If you want a generalised recording procedure it will tie result recorded to experimental instrument state. That state will be related to the details of A or B so the correct data can be recorded. There is no conflict with science.

And as you have the facility to state the number of the step in the argument that you take exception to, please give that number and write something that clearly interacts with the statement given under that number. Just writing "no", followed by waffle that appears to have no connection to anything I've written is more wasting of space and time.
