What Is Natural Law? Natural Law Is Observed Fact.

Say, energy conservation natural law: that the amount of energy stays the same before and after chemical (or nuclear, or any other) reaction.

Or, say, inverse square natural law: moving masses (or electric charges) TWICE closer QUADRUPLES the measured force between them, 3 times closer increases the force 9 time.

Or, say, relativity law of increasing mass: if you move with the speed sqrt(3)/4 of the speed of light, your mass doubles.

Or Newton's second law: F=dp/dt.

And many other GENERAL FACTS about behavior of mother Nature which we call NATURAL LAWS.

Tell me, where do they come from?

And, by the way, they have nothing to BELIEVE in -nature would behave BY THE SAME LAWS regardless who takes measurements - humans, aliens, or even NO ONE. Nature obeys energy conservation or inverse square law before humans and in the absense of humans. And you can write equations in arabic, latin, greek or maya notation - it does not matter, the result is the SAME. You can use yard stick or meter stick, pounds or kilograms or any other measures - the result of you measurements (conservation of energy, or quadruplig force with half distance) is SAME.

So, where do laws of mother Nature come from? And what belief do THEY need?

Warm regards.
