The first paragraph above is so preposterous I can't believe that I'm
really seeing it on my monitor. Almost *no* phenomena studied by
scientists during the last 400 years had a theoretical explanation until
fairly recently, and even now it tends to boil down to something like
"symmetry demands it," and if that doesn't work "broken symmetry demands
it." Wow, *symmetry*, eh? That certainly saves us from all those bad
experiments and a slap in the face.
