The Ten Assumptions of Science

1. MATERIALISM: The external world exists after the observer does not.
2. CAUSALITY: All effects have an infinite number of material causes.
3. UNCERTAINTY: It is impossible to know everything about anything, but it is possible to know more about anything.
4. INSEPARABILITY: Just as there is no motion without matter, so there is no matter without motion.
5. CONSERVATION: Matter and the motion of matter neither can be created nor destroyed.
6. COMPLEMENTARITY: All things are subject to divergence and convergence from other things.
7. IRREVERSIBILITY: All processes are irreversible.
8. INFINITY: The universe is infinite, both in the microcosmic and macrocosmic directions.
9. RELATIVISM: All things have characteristics that make them similar to all other things as well as characteristics that make them dissimilar to all other things.
10. INTERCONNECTION: All things are interconnected, that is, between any two objects exist other objects that transmit matter and motion.

1. Time is motion.
2. Motion is not a dimension.
3. The universe is Euclidean (3-D only).
4. Neither empty space nor solid matter can exist. Both are idealizations, with reality forming the continuum between them.
5. Because empty space is impossible, the nonexistence of the universe is impossible.

1. The Big Bang Theory of the “origin” of the universe is false.
2. The cosmological redshift mainly is a function of distance, not recession.
3. Gravitation is a push, not a pull.
4. There is an intergalactic medium for the transmission of electromagnetic radiation.
5. No particles are massless.
