Physics, hostage to a postulate

The properties and behavior of matter are studied by the natural sciences, and conclusions about these properties and behavior are drawn on the basis of experiments. Hypotheses and theories are addressed in these experiments. However, today physics deals also with the properties and behavior of matter which were derived from postulates. After a brief treatment in this paper, it is concluded that the natural sciences, and most of all physics, should not be served with postulates, because these limit the possibilities for development, distract from the mission of explaining and discovering nature, and transform science into mysticism.



Les sciences naturelles étudient les propriétés et le comportement de la matière, et des conclusions en sont tirées sur la base d'expériences. Les hypothèses et les théories sont testées par ces expériences. Cependant, la physique contemporaine utilise aussi sur des propriétés et des comportements de la matière qui ont été dérivés de postulats. Après un bref traitement dans cet article, nous concluons que les sciences naturelles, et en particulier la physique, ne doivent pas être alimentées par des postulats car ils limitent les possibilités de développement, nous détournent de la mission d'explication et de découverte de la nature, et transforment la science en mysticisme.



Key words: Physics; Postulate; Hypothesis; Velocity of Light.
