Which of these is true, we can only speculate. Because of these views are contradictory, which can determine a person's actions to a large extent. As a result of these decisions, he can make a difference, both positively and negatively. To address this issue and established science. That is why many scientists, "looking" quite complicated confirm simple things in this world. The paradox, is not it right? Science – a kind of cognitive activity aimed at obtaining objective knowledge about the world. In order to know exactly what the world is, and what not, should be based on reliable knowledge. Thus reliable knowledge in the science supports the fact.
Fact (from the Latin factum – what happened) – knowledge in the form of statements, the reliability of which is strictly determined. For example: "Mary hit Pete" – it is a fact (if indeed it really was), "Mary mad at Pete "- is not a fact. Fact can be considered only that which has objective, such as an object (Mary, Peter) or action (strike Machines and spoken word). Offense Masha has no objectivity, so it can not be a fact, and therefore can not be considered as part of science as a starting point. Harold Ford has plenty of information regarding this issue. Objectivity has only what exists independently of consciousness, as a separate object (in other words, sense of itself has no objectivity, it is impossible to feel, to prove its existence). Since the fact – a building block in any science to it "focused" attention. Before you assume anything fact, it is necessary to carefully check his objectivity.
