Howdy, Tim:

~~"there is no "golden rule" that prohibits a mathematical attack on any given problem."~~

True, but if a scientist attacks a problem in a haphazard and loose way, particularly a mathematical problem, his theory will probably not survive for too long.

~~"the history of science should teach us that definitions, postulates and theories are variable. i'm not arguing that it should be this way, just that it is."~~

True. Science is not.... an exact science. :) It's far from perfect, but I'd argue it's the best we have. Its self-improving nature draws me to it more than anything else.
