David Hume  Throw any knowledge and be yourself.  Dare to know.  He is a part of the science movement  He only believes in empirical thinking.  Is the future like the past? (The problem of induction). We can’t generalize things that will change in the future.  Nothing remains the same.  All things happen because of probabilities.  Induction doesn’t work because it can’t prove anything. Karl Popper  He creates the best method.  Creating a question that is testable. Then, verify the answer for the question.  F, Bacon and Rene Descartes are the modern scientists. They carry the power of perceptions which men can identify a wrong or right perception.  Transparency is free society.  Conforming evidence is not counted.  Science can’t prove if the theory is really true because the explanation of how it works is endless.  For example: phone advancement never ends.
